in yangon again
traversed all around myanmar
back once more
slow burn taxi from airport into town
one two mosquitos
woman cleaning, praying at
golden nat shrine tree
along the roadside
luxury condos
concrete block houses
sky scratching cranes
building buildings one by one
downtown stacked with traffic &
noise
men in longyis
street salesmen galore
samosas
pakoras
chapati
chicken skewers
nuns &
monks &
midnight black  hijabs
minarets & markets
casino hotels skyway bridges
dogs beneath the railway underpass
hipsters, tripsters
even cool ice cream flipsters
the cars pile up
pumping black exhaust &
eternal horns

golden shimmering paya
rise up above the din
to kiss the sky

out on the town in our longyis
my dad & i
his a pale teal turquoise
mine a lavender pink
instant respect & props from the hotel girls at the front desk
sergeant pepper clad bellhop helps my dad tie his up correct
we hit the streets
silks a-flappin’
locals diggin’ us as we sidle by
the alleys open up before us
father & son in their pasos
out painting yangon
my girl in ripped jeans
phil collins tee beside
she carries the cash &
cameras
to rangoon tea house we ramble
us three

dirt dogs looking on in wonder
