S. K. Kelen Car Poems

  • 1.

    Over the road from the three star Galaxy Hotel is our hotel,
    the old park on Phan Dinh Phung Street,
  • 2.

    The sun is burning a hole in your pocket
    and though very slowly you are making
  • 3.
    The spider was there when we moved in
    basking on a sunlit bit of wall
    waving its front legs in greeting.
    Dad said it was “a cheeky bastard”
  • 4.
    Remember back in the early sixties
    The ridge was a scrap metal dump
    Wasteland without a decent tree-
    At the periphery workshops recycled
  • 5.
    Open the refrigerator & it laughs
    Look outside at the white fire
    Twirling above an exploding deep freeze
    White whirl upward, upward
