Remembrance Now A Crime

written on June 4th

a lone man stood
in front of a column of tanks ...
vigil ban in Hong Kong

police phalanx
some hundred smartphone flashlights
near Victoria Park

candle lights flicker
in the rooming house window
exiled HongKongers

FYI: The US and EU consulates in Hong Kong lit candles in their office windows on Friday to commemorate the 32nd anniversary of the 1989 Tiananmen Square massacre...Hong Kong Free Press, June 4
