April 14th, 2012.
The day when Asian pride and Asian food came crashing together
to create an event that compelled those who call themselves Asian
(or those who have an immense love/fetish for all things Asian)
to drive through the thick and thin of horrendous traffic
only to get into more traffic in the form of hungry, irritated Asians
bumping around each other
like smelly claustrophobic sardines
just to get that two sticks of takoyaki.
If a meteor came crashing down on the city of Pasadena,
it would’ve taken out half of LA’s East Asian population,
most of them still wondering before their fiery deaths
what the hell
