a young politician in the rain
song zijiang (chris song zijiang)

rain fell
walking
without a shade

jacket
separated me
from the rain
wind

a drop
drops
from flushing cheeks

onto the ground
making a sound
that only the shoe could hear
 
dirt at feet
splashes on jeans
dirtier

denim stuck on thighs
heavy steps
heavier heart
beat weak

holding the right fist high
crying, ‘I want democracy!’
