Depths and wastes

‘I came from the depths, flopped onto the shore like a deep-sea creature. I came from far off, from the wastes, loped into the settlements like a starving animal. I wasn’t an exception, I wasn’t marked out for anything special, but I only understood people who’d come from the same depths and wastes. The others, almost all of them, seemed to speak a different language.’
