5 - Rafthouse

A king, a family woman, a Brahmin,
A minister and breasts;
When displaced from their proper positions,
Do not appear attractive.
The Hitopadesha

Wat Tam Sua

A B DAnother Bloody
Dogthe more you wait
the worse it getsScreaming
gibbons captured
when they come to drink

Khun Phen

It’s gonna be hard
we could’ve eaten them

a horse a sword the soul
of an unborn childbats
roost inside the cave
