Viewing the local antiquities

Gilt-edged dumpsters 
in the slant of sweet light: silver-rimmed puddles archipelago in the alley's dark tarmac: skewed shadows of fire escapes fret black the red brick:

"When I was a hostess, in Phuket, I would sit every night with a client and look over the ocean; every night was a beautiful sunset."

Nice little visual, John.

How do you pronounce Phuket - does the PH make an F sound.
If so, it's amusing.

It does, but the u is long, and the syllabic break is before the k.
