What lines are found in environments conformed out of all demarcation?

What line separates the

Rumble of the wheels

From the

Howl of the wolves?


Can you find it


In the endless prefabrication?

Premade markers of

False prosperity ,

Same roofs over

Same walls enclosing

Same dreams of a

Dreamless life.


Can you find it

In the conformity of



Can you hear the

Howling wolves

In the

Rumbling wheels ,

Through endless identical streets

Passing you by?


Can you hear it now?

I grew up on a cattle station in the Australian Outback and decided to spend the rest of my life seeing the rest of the world.

    That's how I felt growing up, like being closed in but in an open space. Open spaces in the city were few unless you lived near a park like I did and yet, even in that park, the view of the apartment where I grew up was always in sight. There was no escape unless I closed my eyes and fantasized.
