This barista inspires me to buy a new dress. Which they conveniently sell right in the coffeeshop.
I look at patterns
in my lap
at a fancy hotel
that could be anywhere. Costa Rica, California, Chiang Mai. All the lights are on, beckoning comfort and luxury. This is the site of a conference/concert on Burma, where I am hungry and bored.
I go out for drinks with fellow foreigners, activists
people I barely know.
