the mandalay – lashio road
is a hard road indeed
dust a-plenty
zig zag hillocks
concrete chewed & eaten
with tractor trailer teeth by the
hour
mopeds mopeds
as far as the eye can see
singles doubles triples
babies catnapping in their
mother’s arms riding side saddle
spitting betel-juice
cars, taxis, station wagons
bicycles even, here & there
the towns stack up along the roadside
no name towns with a store or two
monasteries with their golden stupas
green blue nagas, green blue walls
green blue trees & skies & stations
all burnt & roasted under burmese sun
& the endless clusters of ramshackle shops
curry houses
selling fruit wine, fruit jams
pork rinds, peanuts
radiators
toilet paper
rice & beer & soups
