I went into the golden dragon in Chinatown
got a table for one
and ordered some food
but all the Chinese people got served before me.
I started to get hungry when six boxes of dim sum
made its way to a Chinese family
steam rolling off the top.
Their young boy kept staring at me.
Hey kid I know I am ugly I wanted to shout at him
but instead I winked a couple of times
Then I noticed the Chinese man with his wife staring at me
thinking I was winking at him.
I gave him a smile
and he looked away.
