beautiful chinese woman

there is a beautiful chinese woman
at karl strauss downtown today.
most men wouldn't see what i see
that makes it hard to look away

from the beautiful chinese woman
having a beer with her fries,
but you know what they say
about what lights the beholder's eyes.

there is a beautiful chinese woman
seated six stools down the bar
who might as well be in peking,
the space between us just as far.

i wonder why it hurts a little
to stare at what i'll never touch
as if my eyes won't find again
a sight that stirs the stars so much.
