'I searched for myself
in the pages of Time,
among the brilliant and beautiful, best sold and discovered
I looked for myself on the screen
wooed by Gable and Brando and McQueen

I found myself
in a bar, dancing for a tip
cheong sam slit to my hip,
or in a brothel, compliant and uncomplicated,
high-heeled in bed, wiping some imperilaist's lips
with hot scented towels.....'
