Why Do Some Men Visit Bangkok?
"One night in Bangkok makes a hard man humble as there is not much between despair and ecstasy whereas one night in Bangkok and the tough guys tumble so you can't be too careful with your company because I can feel the devil walking next to me", he said tactically.
Why is that some shy young guy from the sticks, say a Philadelphia backwater full of 18th century throwbacks in horse-drawn buggies with stiff black coats, why is that when he travels with E@L to Bangkok for his first time, he sees something, something out of the corner of eye, something that gets him thinking, gets him excited, gets him ready to take on new things.
What was it he he saw? What subliminal message made him want to go out to these seedy bars and clubs?
What WAS he after? Something he had never had before, here in this city he had never visited in all his 28 years? Was there something here specially for him tonight?

Finally = Again?
oh shed king of beasts,
how your soar and swoop
what fearful symmetry....
I made the hotel sign connection immediately. Is this where I claim my Bangkok Familiarity Award?
Dick: Sure, The Red Scrotum Award awaits you in the Asoke Suites, second floor, just behind Soi Cowboy, ask for Nok. Condoms 20 Bht extra.
Failing that, see you at Thermae around 3am. Or Lumpini Park anytime after dark.
Milos: A pome for you, and your shed...
I call it...
MEN and SHEDS.
Uh, uh, uh, oooooooooooooh shed, my shed, my sheddy shed...
When my life's shedule has been read,
I shall have fled, you'll find me dead,
My second best bed is in you, oh shed.
I'll shed my clothes, great tears I'll shed
I'll go on weeping till I am... finishéd.
I am hungry for my shed,
I am unfed, instead, I am famishéd,
For a loaf of bread, a book of sheds, (unread),
That glass of wine goes to my head,
... My sheddy, inbreddy, ever-ready,
Steady-eddie, baldy-heady, cuddly-teddy, belovéd...
Oh sheddy, sheddy, sheddy shed
You are my Paradise untarnishéd.
I am become a lonely man, unwed,
Hiding from love (and life) within my one and only...
Either that or I'll live on a boat.
Apologies to that Aussie comedian who used to do those anguished poems on TV, what the fuck was his name? Nat, you remember, tell us!
