Today's NaPoWriMo's challenge is to write a poem in the voice of minor character from a fairy tale or myth.
I chose to write a poem addressed to King Kong in the voice of a homeless man on the streets.
The photo is one of the first photos I ever took on Instagram. It was shot from a taxi as we cruised on the sprawling expanse of Shanghai.

"Hey, King Kong"
Break the concrete.
Smash the asphalt.
Tear a skyscraper off the grid and
Throw it to kingdom come
Dig a Black Hole in this
Perfect, new, endless street
Make it deep enough,
For me to shoot through the earth
Straight towards another galaxy
Straight towards humanity
