Ever since logic fell into disuse,
I wake up every morning
in the same room but a different city,
the buildings a bright blur,
like something out of a secret policeman’s
florid conception of heaven,
a place where millions
anxiously spy on each other
from between their fingers
and all you can hear is
the yapping of small dogs.
