Outdoor miner.

No blind spots in the leopard's eyes

Can only help to jeopardize

The lives of lambs, the shepherd cries

An afterlife for a silverfish

Eternal dust less ticklish

Than the clean room, a houseguest's wish

He lies on his side, is he trying to hide?

In fact it's the earth, which he's known since birth

Face worker, a serpentine miner

A roof falls, an underliner

Of leaf structure, the egg timer

—Graham Lewis/Colin Newman, Chairs Missing (Harvest, 1978)
