TRUST – 西毒何殇

三月 29, 2018

Xidu Heshang

those few days of the earthquake
people in our compound
didn’t dare to sleep in their flats
they moved into tents
the contractor from the eight floor
came out to tell us:
“you don’t have to worry,
I built this myself!
all good material!
if every house in xi’an collapses
this one will still stand …”
then came the clinch:
“otherwise why would I live here,
a guy with money like me?”
