I’m cutting the top
off a box at work
and I remember how
at the Deli
Hwan used to sit there
on a short stool in the kitchen
in his green baseball hat
with his sandals on
cutting the tops off boxes
to fill with sandwiches
to deliver to hungry customers
it was so methodical
so important and peaceful
to see him just sitting there
happily cutting the tops
off boxes
