earth note 106

april 1989

93 degrees 93 percent humidity
suratthani province thailand
raises a mountain cliff
of clouds & rainbows
equator rock tear leaving
a few nerves upended
just after ditching my bicycle
at the base
to get a better view

a spontaneous jolt
to even go there
that sunday
hot-under-the-collar road
down from the stalls & markets
of suratthani city
rolling past sweet coconut
of a sun steeped in orange blaze
a couple of tuk-tuks sped out around me
a field of farmers hold their scythes
in resignation

avoiding the straight-up rock face
cathedral without priests
i soak with the rainforest
of miniature buddhas
