4 - Ayutthaya

The following should not be trusted:
Rivers, persons holding weapons,
Those with claws and horns,
Women and royal families.
The Hitopadesha

Victory Chedi of Naresuan the Great

That fish they caught
the Mekong catfish
was half the height
of this thing

A cat inclines one ear

The Squirrel

Put flowers in your hair
the spirit-house
has Pikachou in plastic
wrappersyellow billows
round Buddha’s behind
