on the highway

iris fan

I should take pictures
but the scenes change fast

one minute
abandoned movie factory
then rice fields newly sowed
after that
harvesting banana trees near
lotus pond covered with algae

from the bridge
rooftop clothes lines fly
flower pots balance on windowsill

south country living room
people sit in front of the flickering TV screen
having dinner, the sound of chewing mixed with
evening news broadcast
drifting in the summer’s air

go under
viaduct after viaduct
the bus crosses
rivers of light and darkness

thinking back
I’m not sure if I’ve seen
the child smiling to me under the banyan tree
