the choice of sunglasses is impor-tant
but on the maple leaf? ray-bans are out

i'd prefer a gaudy hunter s. thompson
hawaiian no. but beige is a city colour
camouflage same with pants & as for
loafers? i shudder ... afraid so ... dumb

but on reflection maybe the cheap fucking
sunglasses did give me away after all.
