city privacy we (women of the new era)

the bridges build walls

the cars glide over bridges

the gum trees evergreen

the excavation of the wetlands

paves way for the great highway

good things happen in the eyes of bridges

the pillars of pillages rape every car that goes by

we sit in the car

we are raped by the pillars

scarf covers my head

I win the bet

tête-à-tête

my winsome
