A Park Down an Alley

Tyler Golec

A Park Down an Alley

It rains too much here

Though sometimes it’s beautiful

Taipei at night...
Taipei at night…

Like now,

Under a sea green-blue canopy

Pitter patter and an elderly dog

Deciding where to shit.


It rains too much here

My feet are soaked

But they’ve been soaked

And I really don’t mind anymore

I’m living many connected moments

And not, I’m in this one

In a beautiful part of an ugly city


It rains entirely too much here

And yet it needs the rain,

Taiwan wants to be clean

Well-fed and equal.

My moment here is brief

And dwindling towards a finale

Yet I love this place

And I hope it finds peace.
