Travel Diary in Haikus : Thailand & Myanmar

 Bangkok, Thailand (Home)

Sweat films my skin like
Post-beach salt. How divine to
Be home once again.

Sukhothai, Thailand

Sweet chlorine stinging
Eyes; a city in ruins.
Six hours driving there and back.

 Mandalay, Myanmar

A teeming city
That falls dark as the sea at
Night. Bus to Bagan.

Bagan, Myanmar

Horse carts; pagodas:
Four thousand of them. Dirt roads.
And us, on scooters.
