wheels and eye shadows

the wheels of this soviet place keep turning
but ever so slowly
ques, and more ques
then the wheels buckles and someone has to come and change it
there is a process for this
not linear, more arse-about
the guy who's come to fix the wheel points and gesticulates
you Que again and pay money
wheel is back on but you've missed the train so have to wait again
get off in the cold, old men swig beer and vodka
it's 10a.m. and the woman behind you wears animal print and blue eye shadow
this is Moscow
welcome to Moscow
mind the step
