sparrows chirp

pray tell me
how do i understand you
precisely, your background
i tell them
go read city of dreams

pray tell me
what does your society look like
is it good, is it bad?
i tell them
go read the wayward daughter

pray tell me
what kinds of people grew up with you?
who surrounded you? what made you possible?
i tell them
go read tilled earth

for they-
they have better way of telling things
than i ever will
a way of telling things
that i never will have.
