beijing tourist snaps — 十七

my girlfriend’s niece
the kind of girl
distracting boys
to klanging posts
the way of the cliché

following the two
a restaurant floor

the queen panther
touring the village

the gentleman peasants
watched

the ladies too
for fear of their guys
for wanting there
for distaste
for the chutzpah
for when they weren’t allowed
for just because
i’ve no clue
