descend into the haze

simplified or traditional
neither is sufficient
ninety-nine years is forever
where skyscrapers come and go
at the blink of an eye

man of the world, man on the street
living together and never meeting
six-lane highways to future and hope
restricted access, divided in unity

up on the peak the air is clear
the city shrouded in smog
but from below, looking up
even the sky’s no limit

fragrant harbour
an oasis in the world
belonging nowhere
encompassing all

(18.1.3) Hong Kong
