Map published by the U.S. Department of Defense in 1981, about the military influence of the Soviet Union in the third world countries. The map shows nuclear submarine operating areas, sea lines of communication, overseas naval facilities, major Soviet arms clients, Soviet reconnaissance aircraft facilities and several other Soviet power structures.
pink lambos graze your dreams, you veer into a blinding room // i scout the horizon for survivors, only us two in the mirror // in time, the monuments will move // walk with tired feet, begrudge the way things are // a thousand years and nothing more // nothing less // two blinking eyes and some ghosts to snare // i run ahead, looking for survivors // there’re so many of us // we’re all just looking for working refrigerators and warm transistors to keep our fears at bay // never knew transistors are by definition capable of making things Right // that’s what we need // bats next door and maybe vampires // one or two bites, now that’d be a real party // i’m falling under oodles of straws here, glorified merchant of dreams // talk me out of it // talk me out of it // i’m left here, drawing poor circles in the dirt // geometry was never my strong suit
Me quietly singing under my breath:
‘I know everybody on this island seems so happy on this island....'
(five minutes later)
Me shouting at the top of my lungs, standing on the table like it's my boat, fan blowing in my hair like a sea breeze:
'See the line where the sky meets the sea it calls me, and no one knows, how far it goes!!'
