A Pho Poem

The rain clouds above us were ominous; the air, a frigid chill.
It feels like a soup night, we said.
Yes, a big bowl of pho! That would fit the bill!

Somewhere close, not too far.
And it must be cheap!
Not more than seven bucks! And ten minutes by car!

We zoomed out. Got there in eight minutes tops.
It was an old school, local place,
In a room that smelled of old mops.

The service, well, it was absent at best.
Green neon. Placemats with Chinese zodiacs.
But that soup! That made up for the rest!

It was hot; it was good.
Yeah, it tasted like any other bowl of pho,
Yet it warmed us from the inside out, as we knew it would!

I guess the next time I'm home I should give this place another try. I went once ages ago when they first opened and thought t was rather meh. Maybe it's improved with age.

I wouldn't put this in your itinerary when you're home. It's just one of those joints that you go to because it's super close and super cheap (it offers all bowls of pho for $5 at its Happy Hour, which ends at 6 p.m., I think).
