Photo: View of Hong Kong from Star Ferry

Twenty hundred hours from the thirty-seventh floor
Lights tower over Victoria Harbor. From Kowloon
to Hong Kong, sky scrapers twinkle-twinkle
manmade stars; shining, flickering to the sounds
of the tourism board. Ferries hurry from shore
to shore. Tired workers huddle into queue, surging
for the sliding door; rarely asking for anything more.
Lamborghini’s race at diplomatic immunity speeds.
Proletarian speaking ... once a fishing village,
now a sea of “Chinese Liberation” dreams.

"Proletarian Speaking" has given a flawless diamond glowing star to add light to the life's style of Hong Kong.

I have enjoyed the reading of "Proletarian Speaking".

In admiration,

Perfect pictures both, this is how it is in this unique former colony, now a full part of China and yet with its own distinctions and identity...and shortcomings like everywhere else. A fine write.
