Meanwhile, in Fuga City

He waited
for the traffic to ease
before setting out
on his next
voyage of
discovery. A
problem for the
modern explorer,
this lack of time
between first-
fall & over-
population. Here
only a few days
& already fighting
his way through
crowds to reach
the port. &
being here first
meant he took
the best berth
by default, meant
everything was put on
hold while he found
part-time work
to pay the upwardly
mobile mooring fees.
Worlds went begging.
