ningxia night market
an explosion of color
scents & sounds
a line of food carts
five blocks long

more food than you can imagine
fish potatoes shrimp salad roll sandwiches
pork buns bean buns veggie buns steamed buns
spring rolls okinoyomiyaki
kim chee noodles chicken noodles
pork noodle fried chicken
cheesy chicken
taiwanese sausage
scallion pancakes
with or without
egg
fried squid
boiled clams
stinky tofu stinking up the joint
fresh fruit cut or
blended
cold cans of beer
soups & stews

a narrow lane with food cooking either side
maybe five feet in between with two
orderly lines of gawkers
filing down the middle
tables under awnings behind
fish on ice
woks on flame
grills & thrills
& an array to
choose from

and there at the end
after all the eating &
fire & gluttony

a row of fairground games
to help with the
digestion
