bag placement

i’d like one day
to hang my bag
at the back of my chair
whenever i eat out
i’d like
the fuss
of that small worry
of where to put my bag
in restaurants
or cafeterias
or carenderias
or Jollibees and KFCs
i’d like
that small
little, tiny fuss
of where to put my bag
but mostly
i’d like
to hang my bag
at the back of my chair

i think
the back of the chair
would be the ideal place
to put my bag
because my lap
would not be it
i’d like to eat
without it in the way
and the table
is, of course
the place for food
for warmth
and viands
and rice
and water or drink
and hands
not bags
i’d like that
one day
for now, though,
for now it sits
in the chair
where you’re supposed to.
