My City

My city is a great ship
and the water is on fire

we’re in the know, oh so hip

when every step you take
leads past a grave or two

we know where the bodies are buried
where coins dropped from their eyes

where impatient spirits are ferried
and heavy smoke muffles their cries

Chores 01/11/2015

I spent a slow day doing chores instead of busily pedaling around Siem Reap trying to take as many photos as possible. I got a little sunburned yesterday and that always makes me sleepy.

The temples, the mopeds, the gaudy shops, the dusty side streets, the tuk tuks, the roadside stalls, and the crowds will be there tomorrow morning.
