ความรัก (Love)

This Thai beachside paradise

of dribbled concrete streams
and well-kept swept lawns

is like the constructs of love
which also require maintenance
of surfaces and hid beams

which too need an ear to creaks
and underfoot complaints

Left unattended

even for a day

and the autumn leaves
will fill the pathways

The beach will rustle with plastic
and the drains’ stink will stay.
