Two Cities

近日
你忙於梳理往事
在每一個黑暗角落
燃起燈火

一把月亮扇子
北京皮影
猛虎駿駒
夜夜魚龍舞

Now
when you have lost that sense of place
when you no longer call streets
by their names
you're
at home

It takes a city
to remember
another

I want to remember this city well
I went to the CN Tower
I went to the EX
I put on a Canada Goose
Just to beat the cold

Sometimes I think I'm selfish
and have no tenderness
one city haunts me constantly
dreams of broken memories
hit like shattered glass
the other
slips away so stealthily
a black cat
walks into the night

If there is love
where's the certainty?
and how much
how deep
how far
