“Busy in a bus or lacking luck you poke to pluck a pick-up truck.
Utterly shocked you choke in the lock and check if you chuck a buck or if you are stuck in the muck.

Such day that defies all your senses and makes you want to fly...
To fly away!”
Ana Claudia Antunes, ACross Tic

They toss their coins to the homeless guy perched at the station gates
But he is the one who sees the beauty of the world”
Akachi Obijiaku

“As nature becomes antique,
And luxury towers are praised as sleek,

Too working-class to speak, they rush to school lest their future be bleak.”
