I wrote the above poem before I had the idea for the comic. It was based upon a dream I had in 2008. In the dream I fell asleep on an empty train. When I woke the train was filled with dandies and rastafarians ( I guess both share a kind of stoicism). The story about the tree falling down was what one elderly rastafarian told me as the reason why they were all traveling somewhere. This scene was to be put into comic form for issue 2 of my comic EL GLOBO, but I included it into this strip as an interlude. Below is the train scene.
