Trigger Warning

For Helen Hengxiang Liao

Close by or far away
Obscure or popular
Virtual or natural
I have so many places yet
To go, to visit, to experience

(With even more others equally
Eager to join in or reluctant
To drop out)

Whereas there
Are so fewer & far fewer
Places where I could return
To, much less with someone
