Corrosive sulphur smell masks raggedy peeling paint of a cerulean blue shade
. Dim , dark spaces , tunnelling back into cavernous curving arches . Two iridescent orbs shimmering against black , inky , fetid air . Sea stench
, chemical car exhaust , rotting vegetation , ancient dust , ground up insect carcasses , and embedded paint textures
. Where am I ? Incarcerated in the St Kilda Vaults . Rust , dust and sea must , I am in a subterranean vault , below bitumen , juxtaposed between the upper and lower esplanades , of St Kilda .
A boarded up retail space
, sacrificed f0r the sweeping expansion of the bitumen tentacles of a spinning roadway .
