Veteran’s tall War tales,
Times lined ships at bay,
Strait stretched flats,
Airborne numbers on them,
Spirited Chinese barrels,
Little Indian spice traders,
Mustafa’s strewn spread,
Footsteps at metrostairs,
Food malls of Bedok,
Stench of smoky soup,
Coils of hung snakes,
Cavenagh’s bridge to Asia,
Museums of Chettiar’s money,
Ornamented houses by the quay ,
Glass cased, wheeled sea lifts,
Patrick’s Tabla.

Her anxious eyes.
Lamb among Lions.
