Treasure Island

William Weiyi Marr


Chicago Serenade


Evening
a desolate street

A car with its windows tightly rolled up
stops for the red lights

Suddenly
in the rear-view mirror
a dark figure
looming

Sir, buy...

The ashen driver
steps in fright on the pedal
and rushes through the red lights
like a rabbit running for its life

... buy some flowers
today’s Valentine’s Day

(1985, Chicago)

Virtue to love, and vices for to flee;
