AT MALAYSIA’S KENTING CASINO
Too many gamblers jump to their death
from above the clouds at 1800 meters.
The Kenting Casino has 6118 beds,
floating up there like in Taoist caves,
away from it all.
Now you can only just stretch out your hand,
every window’s restricted.
To fly like a fairy,
look for other options.
Every ceiling in every bedroom
has a black arrow
(first time I slept under a sword of Damocles) ,
to show the direction for prayer.
