Xu Lizhi (Poet, Foxconn Worker, Factory worker) – “Sleepless”

"A shanty town of corrugated metal shacks atop a Kwun Tong factory building.  Hong Kong's overwhelming density and lack of affordable housing means that even such crummy homes can deliver unexpectedly high rent." - Via http://www.chinafile.com/multimedia/photo-gallery/floating-city-inside-hong-kong-now

“We ran along the railway,
arriving in some place called ‘the City’
where we trade in our youth, and our muscle.
Finally we have nothing to trade, only a cough
and a skeleton nobody cares about.
‘Sleepless’”
— Xu Lizhi
