Khlong observations

Khlong Observations: July 2011

hot pink bougainvillea and oleanders spilling over balconies -
suddenly, a flash of an orange fish suspended in a opaque green fish tank precariously perched over the edge and
drooping green trees against a cerulean blue sky.
Wicker bird cages, gingerbread trim, and teak houses with
saffon monk's robes hanging on the clothesline.

the smell of green curry and chilis hitting hot oil
rotting vegetation, diesel fumes, frangipani

Rickety green foot bridges
old trains hurtling across the khlong
arches of yellow flowers reflected in the murky water.
