Between me and you, strangers in time and space, there is

nothing. No connection, no knowledge. I do not know

who you are. You do not know who I am. You know

I am Asian because you see it and so does the rest of the world

Profanity upon profanity. I hear endless and see endless of them, all

directed towards me. Your eyes meet mine before you hold up that single finger

Your eyes meet mine before you hurl a piece of chewed gum at my face.

And I feel sad. For you and for me.

Me, for not knowing who or what caused you to hold

so much anger and hatred towards me

towards us.

You, for not knowing how much anger and hatred is

slowly killing your soul.

Humanity as I know is like you and me. Strangers full of hate towards strangers.

Is it worth my anger? Is it worth fighting over?

I feel nothing but sadness for you and me and what is between us:

Nothing.
