travel macao haiku*
john tiong chunghoo

i. fisherman’s wharf

all in the neighbourhoods
Tang Dynasty Palace and
the Roman Coliseum

Macao Fishermen’s Wharf
i walk around fishing

Macao Fishermen’s Wharf
as good as the old wonders
the new old architectures

ii. the macao sky tower

Macao Sky Tower
my heart rushes as i open my feet
to look through the glass floor
