Uriah Hamilton

Shanghai Street - Poem by Uriah Hamilton

I fell in love
With your black hair, Ping,
But have no real concept
What it would mean
To kiss your milk-white shoulders
And perfect neck.

Mysterious life
Of deities and benevolent ancestors
Will guide me to a Shanghai street
To gaze at women
In pursuit of you.
