you leave your family

home in the middle of the country and

wander out to the edges, where

there are lots of sailors who

give you some special

medical syrup and coffee.  The tomatoes

that they have are red and the

brothels that they attend are

loud.  When you take out your fiddle and

play a funny song, they look at you

like you’re nuts, but you’ve

never tasted nuts before.,

not in brazil, not in macedonia;

you haven’t been anywhere,

but you’re body.
