October Lite

October Lite
(for Maros)

Many years later I still get a glimpse
of that thing you threw
off Sotheros Road, riding behind a motodop,
a post-mortem of the morning after…
That which was wrapped tight in paper,
balled as your signature guts,
chucked on a gutter or grassland
like some detritus of a conquest.
The road has long removed
any of this kind of memento;
The moloch of commerce has gone
big time around here
with more edifices and orifices
in a sprawl of greed and lust.
Whatever, you had your share then.
Your absence now in Phnom Penh
doesn’t really hold for any length
of time. All that was spent, those days
and nights, desire and hex, will never be undone.
