Women in floral
cocktail dresses take
in the Tonle Sap
becoming the Mekong
from their wide gallery
as he orders
the drinks.
Yellow emanates from
behind the Royal Palace
and douses the room.
Your skin is golden
as you sip from
the glass, and work
your way through
each apostrophe and
every single photograph.
