“Doesn’t know how to Talk,
Doesn't Drink,
Doesn't Smoke,
Doesn't chase Women...
He can't even Fish”5

No dim sum trolley Portent
Of their chatoyant future
A megalodon shark Fossil tooth
In a compromised State.

"Time has shed its cloak
of wind, rain and cold,
to assume the Embroidery
of the sun, shining bright and beautiful."6
