girls’ dorm in summer holiday
iris fan

started on a certain day
then one by one
as if programmed
people were gone with their belongings

the only one who remained
sweating in a room of cockroaches
opened the door and found
her slippers echoing
in the long quiet corridor

then she heard something
a jungle drum beat
around the corner

but the door was locked
she leaned forward and
kneeled down to peer into
the key hole

curtains drawn
a record player
playing on the floor
under the window sill
it was then the building began to float
