This week, a poem by Erin Taylor.
searching for the bible belt in HK
sometimes you go walking in Hong Kong
at nine thirty looking for a 7-11
& then that search for a 7-11 turns
into a search for god
a kind face
& sometimes the church is closed
& the 7-11 is open so you buy a twix
instead of praying
& sometimes you don’t need
forgiveness but indulgence.
