Clueless in Cambodia
She was waiting for Snazzy Dan Lazar so I said that's who I was.
She was the sphinx. I was the griffin. Both of us had claws.
"Mister La Zar. You reach already? I make you reacher. Come vit me."
"Some-vair, under ze moonbeam, vay up high," she crooned, huskily.
I loved the voice. I smiled. "Target."
"Vott you care? You chusst kill him."
"Ve fly. Helicopter from Saigon."
I took the job. We fell in love. I came unstuck. She left.
Now I'm all alone. Glueless in Cambodia.
dear dog in...Phnom Penh!
