    I was going to say exactly what Stanford did! This is a wonderful senryu! So very compact but perfectly captures the moment.

    Hello Sheila! Just thought I’d comment. I love the thought if my mind as a beautiful black lacquered box where none of my thoughts can contaminate the others. Enjoyed this!

    Hi Sheila. There's an interesting tension here between the worries of the narrator and the usually tasty items invitingly arranged in a bento box. Or, if the bento box is empty, then the tension is between the worries and its elegant design. Either way, something to ponder on…

    Thanks, Leanne. I'd pictured the box full, but that is an interesting point you raise!
