rivers of flesh and machine


My re-posted tag is one below this one...scroll down

Ebb n flow
Traffic flo
Quick
Slow
Metal n flesh
Strange synergy
Nervous energy
Mass death
Last breath
Just a small push
Of pedal
Unaware
Metal
Robotic
Undulating
Street dances
Alternate advances
Flesh flowing
Through gaps growing
Shrinking..
Slinking
Through
Around..
Robotic..
Hypnotic..
Beep
Shout
Beep
BLEEP


get me outta here

WOW.
Awesome.
I love this.

(But you made me feel like I'm back in the city, and I don't want to feel that way...)

I miss the city. I miss the flow of peoples' strides and the distracted yet focused look everyone has. I have a picture like this from times sq, but from the evening. I'm gonna send it to you.

Now that you mention the subway... when i went to russia and took the metro in moscow, the other girls i was with complained about the smell, and i just took a deep breath in and said "ahhh... smells like home..."
lol.

The Moscow Metro happens to be an underground palace and is extremely efficient, clean and opulent..

My next post is about the subway experience..
