[K] (x)

back & forth
the barman walks

he’s not a clock
a pendulum

but the way he makes
people arrive

just before
     he backs & forths
          is canny

does he think
     “ooh i want to carry a lasagne
          better make sure
     a lasagne eater arrives”

and there you are
     before you know it
(after he does
     of course)
