Wrong Side of the Tracks

Wrong Side of the Tracks

I tried in vain to
imagine what the
place looked like before

the Sidoarjo
mud volcano first
erupted in ’06.

While houses on the
other side of the tracks
still mostly stand,

the ones on the side
of the volcano
got buried in the mud.

Talk about the phrase
“wrong side of the tracks”
getting a whole new meaning!
