from The Singing Gerunds

 

First sights overload, beeps

like bats using echo-

location a high chair

on a motorbike including

baby incense burning

at the tree base all are staring

Ave Maria in neon

what do the license plates say

from the pink church the men chanting

plays the lily pads like

trampolines in the park

thank you is like with one

chopping a big bag of onions

we last maybe an hour out

at the opium re-

finery, team building

information on demand a

mosquito coil at our feet

this plate like the one at

home after the lunar eclipse

professional smile

kids with bright lit bubbles

one Vinasun tows another

the night market full of headlights
