To The Orient


She was a young woman
in her twenties able to
accept the harsh truth
that
a. the average woman
lived longer than a man
b. that men often liked to
date women younger by
a few years or several
decades
c. that fidelity is
more difficult for men
than women

and so she decided
to move to China
where the number of single
men outnumbers that of women
by tens of millions.
