She liked to think of herself as descendant of Genghis Khan and her Asian eyes caused suspicion, but no one imagined a traveler sailing from Hong Kong. A hundred years later, his name had been forgotten, just a sound remained: Ǹg.
Asian eyes, feeling like a leaf moved by the wind, behaving like a liquid with no will of its own, pushed into an already full subway train. Those are the mornings in Mexico City.
Unfitting, unexplainable green eyes witnessing The Horror.
Unfitting, unexplainable green Asian eyes down south near the Tropical jungle, holding soft little brown hands of 40 children, in circle, singing tirelessly game songs, laughing our hearts out. Toothless mischievous smiling faces.
