The Skytrain |
by Nahshon Cook

I was sardined
in a skytrain car

on my way
to Kunokuniya

book store
in Siam Paragon

when a woman
got on at Victory Monument

wearing blue jeans
and a pink shirt that said

Men are idiots
Do you think God

dreamt up stupidity
on the same day

He engineered
the penis

When I shared this story with R.
this morning at breakfast

He said: Well, we are
made in His image
