Ben Newell

scrub

celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain
got his start
as a lowly dishwasher

the job, he claims, taught him
every important life lesson

I concur—

toiling day after day
in this dish pit at 46
has been a superlative education

I’ve learned
some really vital stuff

including
but not limited to

I’m fucked

One thought on “Ben Newell

  1. I love this poem ;
    It’s concise
    It doesn’t take itself too seriously
    It’s funny
    & It makes you think.
    Everything you could ask for in a poem.
