I called it that because there was the church, an unknown civilian (probably a Supreme Court Justice) and, of course, the military. Emblematic of the Pinochet era.

 Crocodiles rest at a farm in the Jordan Valley, West Bank on Monday, Aug. 6, 2018. Hundreds of crocodiles are stuck at the farm where they were brought in the mid-90s to serve as a tourist attraction. Ensuing Palestinian-Israeli violence kept visitors away, prompting the crocodiles' purchase by an entrepreneur hoping to sell them for their skin, but his venture flopped after Israel passed a law in 2012 defining the crocodile as a protected animal, and banning raising the animals for sale as meat or merchandise.

Clark Coolidge: "That poem..." (from POET)

That poem sounds like a bug at the light
  a rug in flight a brain in the night 
that poem goes in the effects hamper
that poem peaks in the morning Times
that poem they don't have all the bugs out of yet
that poem streaks across nobody's anything
that poem is the pride of the matrices
that poem was found on Isaac Asimov
that poem gives directions to the corridas of powder
that poem admits to discrepancies
that poem could be ordered from Ross Allen's Reptile Institute
that poem is subject to no object
