The style of construction in the poorest ghettoes
of Mexico City is given a specific name
to identify the dense scatterings of bricolage which arose,
How shelter could be devised from scraps,
how each family grew their homes about them
to accommodate particularly themselves.
From the city centre high rises it appeared as though entropy
had claimed the fringes of the town;
unregulated chaos of the newly urbanned immigrants
in an unplanned barrage of colour and texture and form.
Within those spaces though they held tight togetherlike worm casings ravelled in the sand.
