Understanding Fame

Uyghur Children, Kashgar, Xinjiang Autonomous Region, The People's Republic of China
It is said, in China
“If you stand anywhere
In the Middle Kingdom
And turn 180 degrees
You will surely see
Another human being”

Which I amended
As a foreigner
Who travelled there
When I turned 180 degrees
I would surely see
An eye looking back at me
