a contemporary Tattoo


beside a mud pond
a green paddy field
green grass field
near a monastery
dancing tattoo paintings
on a wet and dry back
catching fish
in a mud pond
a tattoo song of children
in a small village
in a world of contemporary socio-economic circles.

Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
