look around you

look around you

dodo gao

away from home
fresh air
exotic
if only it would all
fit into my eyes

blue sky
white cloud
Colosseum, Maria Maggiore,
the Spanish Steps
these as imagined
I know them

in the underground
graffiti everywhere
so much
I have to look around
to find the exit sign

a woman wrapped in a black veil
her knees on the ground
faithfully begging
for a way out

and look! a woman with a baby
her hands already in
your Chanel chain bag!
