When there is nowhere to go except to solitariness and waste


One can still maintain public vigil of religion gothic or necronomicon, 
defying things new, modern, blatantly consumerhalten in uniform or common-crowd;  
of things manu-factured - bought, sold for no other reason than that they are deemed 
essential to the unrichened social consideration of joining the largest group imaginable, 
oblivious that largest is also lowest. 

It was as if the Mormons rebuilt Vegas in Canada, delegating it to
Hutterites.  Searching now even for analog lightbulbs, theres no
avenue of escape other than behind the cash registers.

People were hard then
self pity was forbidden
Duelling was common
even among the middling types

As rough as it gets now
is ordering hot wings after eleven
in Clapton or breakfasting
at a former working men's cafe
in Bethnal green
