1.  overheard lights like Godard Alphaville

the spine of the world

a giant centipede

a cricus caterpillar


2.  the waterfall of headlights

spilling over like incandescent water


3.  the searing molten flesh of the tropics

flowing like blood under the fizzler moon


when family's gone, nothing left but these

excresences of dynamite, explosive plots


the veins bulging in the eye

melanomas of the sight
