“nebulae shaped like sleeping” cracking image that, but nowt escapes. You touched on an interesting phenomenon with the scattering of light in a city, without it cities are hard to take, but that play of shadows creates dimensions yhat are transposed into a sensation that this light makes the grind worth it. It doesn’t for me, i like the sea.
I see the sea, rather than the wilderness, as being the city’s diametric opposite, and I’m content to sing both, but more so the city because it seems to get less attention. Also lazy, grape-bellied, autumn wasps – I’ll sing them too.
What makes you see those two as opposites? It’s an odd choice as habitability is usually the reason for wilderness & city being opposites. I’m interested in towns, especially growing one’s, in a sort of limbo, ragged & uncertain of their identity, with an aim to a city practicality & volume but with a country minset still very recent, if not still very present.
Everything needs an opposite or the scales would tip one way. The sea has a single eye, the city has so many.
i love how you capture the city here – a city seems always honest – even in its lies
Yes, as it grins and says “Trust me!” and spreads its arms in an open gesture, you know it’s a trick, the city knows it’s a trick, it is a trick, but some kind of crazy honour is satisfied.
