BEUN BANG FAI

For Friday Flash 55


SKY ROCKETS

Now that Songkhran is over
and the water’s all dried up,
we’ll make today, tomorrow,
two days of beun bang fai














(home-made fireworks; sky rockets,
another superstition
and a good omen for rain).













Two metres of blue plastic
Waste-pipe, filled with gunpowder,
strapped to lengths of bamboo cane.
















Three…




















Two…




















One… …



















Blast off...!
