Those strange days

Does body shape cause mood swings?

Does body shape cause mood swings?

Those strange days
thought long gone crash back in to
interrupt small gains
made in hard
judgmental Asia.

Never one
to fit in, protagonist
sits alone rotting
with monsoon’s
ammonia stink crotch.

Extending
common despair, reaching back
to his best friends: one
must be paid,
the other his son.

Thunder reigns;
satisfaction eludes him,
colleagues disappear,
assignments
evaporate. Gloom.
