Pom, water color on paper, 18x24 inch

Pom, the manager of a Patpong bar, has worked the Bangkok Night for 30 years, never as as a dancer but as a cashier and manager.  She has seen every kind of man and every kind of woman, great, good, bad, horrible and in between.  Every situation in the ongoing drama of man woman relations.  All the distortions and variations of human behavior.  A hundred thousand customers a year, three million in all. Each customer, drawn in by the power of the Bangkok Night, to be obliterated or revealed, triumphant or defeated, passing from one lifetime to the next in the endless cycle of their being.
