Chinese Emperor

Passionate about writing, I am a physics student who likes to write some poetry.

chinese emperor

looking at my face mirrored
in grease stains in a cheap
chinese restaurant in Paris
underneath grey clouds
much like Roman Emperors in
their marble palaces

we're both about to feast
and taste buds don't care about what's
around. beautiful dancers or the
sound of traffic and a screaming homeless man

maybe good chinese food is better
than what the Romans used to eat
