Shanghai

Shanghai Dawn

A day of travel
Boston to Detroit
On to Tokyo
From there
Midnight in China
Cab drive from hell
Clutching wheel
Sweating profusely
Crawling along
Huffing and puffing
Trying to make
The hill as
Traffic zoomed by
Arrived at hotel
As it was written
In itinerary
Fancy and new
Huge marble lobby
Looked at our papers
You can't stay here
For Chinese only
Pleaded exhausted
Just one night
Dawn broke
Early light
First view of
Shanghai
Spread below
From high rise
Window
Looking down
Disbelief
Astrid come look
There on the street
McDonald's
Big Mac
Just like home
Not what we
Wanted to see
