Transcript of the planner

BY: Boey Kim Cheng (1965-present) The planners Paragraph 1! They erase the flaws,
the blemishes of the past, knock off
useless blocks with dental dexterity.
All gaps are plugged
with gleaming gold.
The country wears perfect rows
of shining teeth.
Anesthesia, amnesia, hypnosis.
They have the means.
The have it all so it will not hurt,
so history is new again.
Paragraph 2! Paragraph 3!

They plan. They build. All spaces gridded,
filled with permutations of possibilities.
The buildings are in alignment with the roads
which meet at desired points
linked by bridges all hang
in the grace of mathematics.
They build and will not stop.
Even the sea draws back
and the sky’s surrender. This implies that the cities of humanity are very ordered and that they are laid out in a gridded way. The words alignment and mathematics both signify this ordered environment. This signifies the fact that nothing can stop the onslaught of the cities expansion, even the elements are retreating (the sea and sky) The piling will not stop.
The drilling goes right through
the fossils of last century.
But my heart would not bleed
poetry. Not a single drop to stain the blueprint
of our past's tomorrow. Always saying about teeth-dentistry. All these are meaning to halt or stop. The cities are madness and you can forget where your going because there large size.
