Jubilee Street





Smoky incense

orange, mango and pear

offered to buddha

in a wooden alcove.

The street lined

as a red carpet event

with paper lanterns

green, pink, red, gold.

Hand woven baskets

home to fruits, flowers

bok choy and cabbage

strewn among street stalls.

Neighbors along the street,

raw silk, pots and pans,

souvenirs and toys

compete for attention


and the Hong Kong dollar.
