PLAZA CATALUÑA, BARCELONA

PLAZA CATALUÑA, BARCELONA
© Farouk Asvat

The healthy tourists
Feeding greedy pigeons
At the Plaza Cataluña
Quickly disappear into the Ramblas
Into the seedy Barrio Xines
Never thinking
Of the wasted lives
They left behind

composed: 05.06.1988 [barcelona, spain].

DIRECTIONS TO THE EMBARCADERO

DIRECTIONS TO THE EMBARCADERO
© Farouk Asvat 

[] Directions From A Gringo In San Francisco

     'Excuse me, how do I get to the Embarcadero?'

"Well sir, you can head due north
  And walk for five minutes,
 Then turn west,
 And walk for about three minutes,
 Then you turn east
 And go for another minute or so:
 It's on the south side,
You'll see it,
 It's quite easy,
 - You can't miss it.
 Or you could take the bus,
 Or just grab a taxi,
 Or better still,
 Ride the cable car;
 It's just down the road,
 You'll see it,
 Its quite easy,
 - You can't miss it."

composed: 1989 [Johannesburg, South Africa under apartheid].
