pyin oo lwin
rochester’s twin
or maybe granada,
phonosavan,
yelm or somewhat
batambang-ish?

we walk the streets
into roadside restaurants
with dogs underfoot
unlimited bowls of curries
& side dishes to feast upon

back forth to our local mart
for individual packs of shampoo
bags of chips
cans of chang

through the narrow lanes
back streets
clothing shops & fashion houses
selling indian style sari-s
haircut saloon across the way

tuks tuks idle in the driveways
dirt dogs dirt dogs everywhere
asleep alongside the
rubbish strewn riverway
old colonial style houses rotting in the sun
teak houses, concrete ones
a bustle of tea shops at the corner

hindu temples
anglican steeples
golden stupas
rising from the
rooftops

a man in his yard works an old singer
while his rabbit looks on
horse drawn carriages wait in wonder
down on main street

piles of buildings selling every such thing
sweet shops
sweater shops
candy stores
vegetable markets

the mosque towers &
clock towers rise above the dust &
muffler roars

hail a horse carriage home
through the sunset streets of bedlam &
wonderment
