    Actually, I think the hat suits you.

    No, the light looks wonderful, almost edible: is this way above sea level, or just taken on a clear day?

    Is it the guy in the sharp suit, way in the distance? The one making a phone call to his accountant about stock liquidity.

    That’ll be him.

  4. what I like is the mouth agape, I’m-a-tourist look–its good to be like that. You know, sans stock liquidity.

    I’m certainly sans that. Come to think of it, I’m actually sans stock.

    I enjoyed the ruins–especially the Victorian sewer-pipe driven through them–enough to go round them twice. There were some strange little islands of life between the excavations, grassy slots full of seedheads & finches, where things were just getting on with being themselves away from all that deafening semiosis from a dead–& as far as I can see mad–civilisation.

    The layered structure reminded me of the Chernobyl sarcophagus. An out-of-control cultural engine that had to be walled-in.
