Not Far From Tonle Sap - Poem by uday balakrishnan

A young girl in pajamas
Lost and alone near a cafe
Anxious Germans and some French and Italians too..
Rather lecherous old turtles of indeterminable age
Something disappointingly pornographic
Made the city wail in silence and ache
As the expat crowd sipped gin
On the verandah of the foreign correspondents club...
Down below the motos
Waited and not in vain.
