III. Not this time

Collage ‘Woman’
– El Collie

But not this time

This time is the river
In Saigon
Can you see it

This time is the seduction
In Saigon
Can you see it

This time is the awakening
In Saigon
Can you see it

This time is the dance
In Saigon
Can you see it

This time is the song
In Saigon
Can you see it

This time is the girl
With her man’s hat
Can you see her

This time is the Chinese 
With the girl
Can you see them

This time is the brothers
With the girl
Can you see them

This time is the mother
With the girl
Can you see them

This time is the Ghosts
The ghost of the girl
The ghost of the Chinese
The ghosts of the brothers
The ghost of the mother
The ghost of Saigon
Can you see them

Sad Sad People
Sad Sad Ghosts
In the ghost of Saigon
