Kaposi's sarcoma, ARV's, AZT's
Klong Kun Sii Kanchanaburi

AIDS injected nights in utero fested mother's milk
nevaripine, purified water, infant formula, nectar C-section solutions.

Acid dust vines
baked sheets sun-dried stains
Thai farms pharmaceutical wasteland
ossuaries of skin scamper and play
miniature feet malnourished cavernous orbs.

Sunday market
five Baht buy satay
two dollar buy fuk-ee
