Hell-Ville haikus

[8/2/07 HELL-VILLE, MADACASCAR --- To John: A couple of haikus based on my day in Hell-Ville (which is much nicer than it sounds).

nurses in nun’s habits with
clean, green flip flops.
they’re the only ones,
in this dusty country

ceiling fan sways in motion
cold shower snap
reggae music through concrete walls

foot steps on steep stairs
girl screams ---
it’s a gecko

Thinking of you, John]
