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

rain fell
without a shade

separated me
from the rain

a drop
from flushing cheeks

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

denim stuck on thighs
heavy steps
heavier heart
beat weak

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