Poem: Jakarta worker

blood shot eyes, blood shot eyes, blood shot eyes
four hours commute through chafing wind by motor bike each day?
12 hours shift?
sleeplessness from heat and crowded quarters, crying child, weary wife?
counting bills and income again and again and again?
blood shot eyes, blood shot eyes, blood shot eyes
