                                  wife
                                  mother
                                  homemaker
                                  in sunshine and monsoon
                                  be my boat my treasure stall
                                  of rambutan and dragon fruit
                                  of noodles and khanom krok
                                  for fellow and foreign landers
                                  in the Basin of Chao Phraya

labor trek

                       driving a work day like a weather’d mural be—
                       to and fro knowing every pothole
                       every utility pole streaking past eyes’ corners— 
                       subconscious steering every curve
                       braking every intersection—
                       ‘tis better only as a passenger
                       that marvels lost to attentiveness
                       can be cherish’d and gift’d to memory
