Harbourwalk Poem W001

Having to win a small lottery –
To get a ticket to play the big lottery –
Love in Nova Scotia for me –
As an Asian male visible minority –
Compared to the Caucasian majority

If you were a ghost –
Come back to haunt them!

Going to airport –
For two weeks with one suitcase –
On a street I see –
A lady going around –
With her life in one suitcase

Give me a ladder –
Don’t need no elevator –
Nor escalator –
To get myself to the top –
I like a climbing challenge

For 20 minutes on a

Summoning Beethoven’s ghost
To haunt Halifax-Dartmouth
