earth note 486


when the pedicab bicycles
all gathered at night
in a crowded back street
in surat thani thailand
it was for a wedding
of nineteen-year-olds
with all the friends
and family conversing
      this being the music
it all smelled sweet
like ma-muang
almost til dawn
and the bright eyes
of many thousand nights
before them
