down by the riverside

June 28, 2011

the trickle of piss in torn streets

Bar for sale – name your price

smouldering bananas by the fistful

daily special with free beer

want moto? want  tuk tuk?  want smoke?

hardly noticed now, things go ahead and go bump in the night

(and the day, and the afternoon)

repel the darkness with blinding fluorescence and hard floors

.

children still laugh though

and laughter sounds the same

in all languages
