Rolex Blur


Richmond, * square
town built underground

to feed fears of those veterans
of anxiety, the sturdy chinese.

down the hall hong kong ma.
next door chatty shanghaiee.

more interesting places to be
born than prince george.

but, living in this town
where mercedes and rolex

flash by in fluorescent blur
i much prefer the company

who never sheds poverty
and passes by silently

on shaded minoru path#


* Richmond, British Columbia, Canada
# Minoru Park, Richmond; a favorite spot of mine - see my poem 'Minoru Lakes Gardens'
