I. Japanese Restaurant
I bus your table:
take away your empty plates,
refill water/tea.
By the end of the long night,
I smell just like tempura.

II. Geology Lab
Give me sediment;
squinting into microscopes
for forams, fish teeth.
All things dissolve in acid.
Now I must clean the beakers.

III. Retail
Hello, how are you?
Are you a Rewards member?
Your total due is...
Would you like a bag for this?
Have a nice day/good evening!
