The Gangtok Marathon is canceled. 
Management advises us not to cycle or videotape. 
A coup impels us to stay inside
our rooms at the Nor-Khill Hotel drinking
hot chocolate spiked with Fireball brandy.
From the window Slag shoots footage
of the military camp next door. 
A police officer was stabbed to death last night
while Snow Leopard and Yak
were smoothing each other's fur.
