    30 Years At the Congress
    By James Rusk

    When we moved to Tucson
    more than thirty years ago

    I got a job as a dishwasher
    at the Maynards restaurant

    It was just across the street
    opposite the Hotel Congress

    We,  i.e. my mother and I
    sat behind the main bar

    It seemed so private & fun
    Then, we shifted the front

    Now that I’m long settled
    We change back and forth
