" his shadows answered
as he inhaled the smoke from
a chinese marlboro he found on the street.
it's never lonely in shanghai.
even the pigeons make friends with nobody,
so long as morsels
fall off the brown paper bag where
his pork bao once were
you're forever friends till the last morsel
then the pigeons leave
but the shadow stays till midnight. "
