Getting hammered in Malaysia 

[If you can’t see the player below, please click here ]


Getting hammered in Malaysia

pelted on by heavy water

flared by lightening

assaulted by thunder gods

– as if I’d been cosseted in the womb and sucked outside

– so unlike the Malay.

Raindrops are not under your command

we are sent to clear your air 

disrupt the haze

silence your cough. 

Nothing lasts.

Nothing continues

Nothing sits on top of you 

unless lightening strikes your heart

and takes your breath away.
