1.

stumble upon city godhead temple
dig the godhead
candles burning
plaque above reads
“here you come”
in gold painted mandarin characters
as in : here you come to me,
to death, to the void
do not forget your destiny.

the faithful pray & bow their heads
incense smokes up the walls

2.

firecrackers erupt at midnight
all up & down the city
the sky fills with smoke & flashes
the year of the rooster has come to
taiwan
