  • We were in elementary school together.
    During recess, we once put on red vests
    and pretended to have power
    as prefects as we told younger kids not to run too fast.

    This was my first playground in Canada.

    We walk around our old neighbourhood
    and reminisce over chess competitions and sundials.
    The Hasty Market is now gone,
    the school portables are removed,
    and he community center is temporarily closed.
    But otherwise, everything looks eerily the same.
