A snack split by two

Laundry

Time

Gone

Ching

Restaurants with higher prices

Meeting higher rents

Ching

Old apartment

Barely able to host guests

While the rent inflates

Uncontrollably

Instability

Toothpaste

Toilet paper

Ching

Falling hopes of reservations

How can the prices keep soaring

Questions now

In every situation

“What do you do for a living”

“How do we… live?”

Ching

Coffee $5

Parking

Free

Thank God

How can a city run so freely

Yet so dangerously

Close

To default

How do we survive

What do we do

The Questions

Are now being

Asked in every quadrant

Flee

Maybe

Ching

Let’s call it a night
