To Aura and Angel

Angel, Aura and Prisana
Angel, Aura and Prisana

U2 are from the East and yet you love everything West...

I am from an other world
from East and West
I am Thai..."Free", or am I?
visa vee

Everyday I pray for our freedom
I pray that the beauty of Siam will survive
Angel says she never prays
she is happy and doesn't care
"MAI PEN RAI": "THE SMOG IS FRESH."

Berlin
Berlin

Perhaps Angel is right

Perhaps I shouldn't care so so much
But Buddha taught me long ago
to care...really care
for the Welfare of Others

Yes...you're right
I am too intense...too tired to try much more
how dare I write these words tonight
how dare I try or cry
I should go shopping instead...
Or give someone great head

CHOKE DEE my friends...the air is fresh

the Opera moving...another picture show
Mai Pen Rai the rest
All the best
In IMF WE TRUST
already bust

17 billion baht minus
who cares
Millions of people out of work
never mind
corruption runs amuck
so what?

The note I gave Kerry Packer the night after meeting him in his penthouse suite at The Oriental Hotel in Bangkok.

Never Mind Never Mind Never Mind...(Chants the Mind)

"Don't cry for me..." I am happy, broke and free...
Is it true that the poor will inherit the earth?
VAT's the inheritance tax on that?

Angel and Aura
you are right
"Smile and the World smiles with you...
fart and you stand alone."

The secret of Siam

is to Smile in the face of Adversity
to be Sanuk and not Sanoh
to bee or not to be
East and West as One
Is our destiny.


Written while in Berlin, a few months after the Asian Financial Collapse in 1997.

Hahaha... nice one! But believe me, from experience with Aquarian Conspiracies I've found that Scorpios like me tend to join far more than the dots together... :)

Good morning my dear Prisana and it's so nice to hear from you once again and I often think in countries like the U.S. and Canada that we take a lot for granted until those of us who are receptive, perceptive and open minded are able to see how the other half lives and it's a real eye opener and really quite humbling indeed.

Thank you for your opening up your big beautiful heart and as I always say in terms of poetry - if you write from your heart then the mind will always follow - and you succeed so brilliantly with that theory in everything you write.

I will see you on FB and thank you for making my day - sending to you my warmest wishes and good energy from Colin and his cats Tiffy and Gabriel at lake erie time ontario canada 10:15am

This is a beautiful, sad commentary and, having seen your comment on an Epi poem, I came to read.
