Rusty Bicycle

An old man pedals his rusty bicycle

Down a narrow lane

In dingy white shirt and bamboo hat

He pedals slowly, aware:

Each creak of the wheel.


A neighbor knows the sound,

Calls out to him:

"Why don't you buy a car, Dr. Chen?"

He smiles,

Says nothing,

Pedals on.

He can afford some oil.
