+ inevitably following observations made in HCMC, and also a gift for Vi Thuy Linh, Hanoi.

- Do not put your feet on the toilet seat
- Do not flush tampons down the toilet
- Do not write nonsense on the wall [especially poetry]
- Do not shoot up on drugs, substances which cause addiction or aggression
- Do not make use of the private room to leak national secrets
- Do not hock loogies, litter, ash cigarettes messily about
- Do not masterbate
- You can not use condoms [both men and women]
- You can not use profanity
- You can not forget to flush the toilet
- You can not forget to pay money
- You can not forget your personal effects and belongings


And finally: PLEASE KEEP PUBLIC HYGIENE

IGNORE PERSONAL HYGIENE

PLEASE KEEP PUBLIC HYGIENE

PLEASE KEEP PUBLIC HYGIENE:
is the terminology pressing the light of life in the substance and spirit of my Vietnam
because all same Compatriots
because all same Uniform
because all same Unanimously concentric
Because all same Accomplices
Because all same Coreligionists
Because all same Fellow disciples
because all same Comrades
because all same Sickness

Because all same Brass
Because all same Empty unharvested moor
Because all Same same… alike each other

Lazy, ignorant, meddling, disgraced, sullied, falsified, misrepresented misled and victimized among ourselves... this is our profession

We live according to the doctrine [magic] law [jungle]
We are a public bathroom
Can’t be this, can’t be that...

But in the end also must: KEEP PUBLIC HYGIENE
