bus conductor

he looked
like he
didn’t want
to be
bothered till
he offered
me kwai
and we
became friends

their love

their love
had witnessed
lunar and
solar eclipses
their love
had tasted
bitter and
sour truths
their love
had fought
cold and
frosty battles
their love
however could
not survive
ethnic discrepancies

“there is no war of industry and massive global scale,
only localized wars of pride and prejudice,
fought in the paddies, the hills,
and the nearest torture chambers of the captors.”
