Lit With Me


Literature made easy, I think.

Singapore River

Singapore River
Lee Tzu Pheng

The operation was massive;
designed to give new life
to the old lady.
We have cleaned out
her arteries, removed
detritus and slit,
created a by-pass
for the old blood.
Now you can hardly tell
her history.

We have become
so health-conscious
the heart
can sometimes be troublesome
