These days I pass Fu's Palace each morning on my drive to work
Fu's Palace where my father would meet with his chorus in years gone by
to drive through LA is to drive through the past it's a kind of perk
but if past isn't past is our calling it "past" a kind of lie?
such thoughts engage this addled brain on the drive today
if the meaning is seemingly locked away who holds the key?
what if even the future is already past! as some might say?
the past is past & the present is past! or soon will be
Fu's Palace is the name of a Chinese restaurant located on Pico Boulevard in West Los Angeles.
