from coronado

Trekking the transient tarmac
Overrunning the striplit watering holes
Our days are spent underground
Operating machines
Carried by machines
Feeding and fed by machines

malta 204

The city is choking on travellers
Who have forgotten their destination
As if every hypermarket was hyperstocked
With canned lotus juice

We have forsaken the tents of our forefathers
to rebuild the caves of our ancestors
