This is no coast and it was written tonight, following some travels to the local island of Koh Anlong Chen, which is on the Tonle Bassac, just south of Ta K’Mao, the “suburb” of Phnom Penh to the south. The island, which I visited about a month after moving here, is quite big. The first time I explored the southern end of the island with my friend Boramy Sou (you can probably find some pictures from that trip on this blog if you look hard enough), and this time I visited with my friends James and Dede. Pictures forthcoming. And the poems, which are hardly edited and hardly to be published anywhere, are more of a free-writing exercise on the experience.
