Phnom Penh couplets

December 18, 2018

when is a traffic light
not a traffic light?

don’t look for Wat Lanka
on Wat Lanka Street

out across the chequerboard (of days and nights)
on motos under skies both dark and bright

the guys I use drive for a living
which is a good reason to choose them

tourists with terrified eyes sit forward in tuktuks
embracing their luggage for comfort

meanwhile the beer for breakfast crowd
fail to recollect that they once did that too

when is Christmas
not really Christmas?

taking your shoes off for a while
makes your feet healthy

where are you headed?
where do you think?

it’s been days since I won a can of beer with a ring pull
perhaps the policy has changed

and then, just like that
I won another beer
