Are you finished yet?

kean svay, cambodia. 2006.

Her intense gaze pierced my back.

Seemingly peaceful, the waves splashed the edges of the floating restaurant.

She pleaded. Soft cries rang through her swollen abdomen.

With each bite, I only tasted sadness.

Here.

She licked the fish clean, savored my pommello.

  1. So poignant. “With each bite, I only tasted sadness.” How we take things for granted, want to help, don’t always know how…You’ve called up so much feeling with your 42.

  2. Lovely and sad. And what a beautiful photo. Did you take it? I’m really glad you hitchhiked – I would have hated to miss this one.
