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#
