vetting for the ramen restaurant

she was not quick enough

her management
of the sticks
looked
superficially
quite fine

and the dangling mass
of ramen
was arranged to be
a proper mouthful

but she lacked
the needed firepower

was too weak to master
the inhale

insufficient training

she slurped as loudly
as anyone
(a credit to her)
but

on the sticks
those elegant
bamboo chopsticks
the noodles
stubbornly
remained
