Who said I was inside?

Oh! I wish it wasn’t

Put it in the tree

Or on the clothing line

 

Hang it up to dry with tears

In sweltering Hanoi

 

If it can’t make it in light

We’ll do it otherwise

Permeate, waxing

 

Those mosquitoes hover in the moonlight

A void where half a whole

World kissed God
