HOLDING A NOVEL, NOT READING – 光頭

HOLDING A NOVEL, NOT READING

coming back from tea at a friend’s place
everyone at home is asleep
the restaurant is lit up
good for me when I return late at night
walking out on our balcony
I can hear them downstairs
two women talking
in cantonese
I don’t understand them
after a while
they are silent
it has just rained
they said in the news, a taifun comes tonight
I sit on the sofa
take up a novel
not reading
thinking of something
