Day Break

 

At night he dreams:

of a journey on wings

to far-away places

and beautiful things.

 

Then…

 

daybreak:

heat, flies and dust.

 

Vacant eyes,

hungry soul.

 

And…

 

 on the next corner

sits another,

and the rhythm of life

beats on in the relentless heat

of the Phnom Penh streets.
