Garden Tour Cancelled ©

Dr. Charles Frederickson
Bangkok, Thailand
2005

Last day before everlasting fast
Shrove Tuesday excessive indulgent gourmandise
Masked ball carnival tarnished doubloons
Bourbon Streetwise jazz foregone conclusion

Congealed sacrificial voodoo bloodstream staining
Gingerbread palm whitewashed mansion gables
Strewn windswept blossoms premature wilt
Pitiless magnolias rejecting timeless mercy

Tin cup of graciousness empty
Flipped coin faces wiped clean
Indecipherable heads versus tails dichotomies
Picked pockets turned inside out
