Botanic Gardens

Ladies and gentlemen, we are approaching our final destination. Along the highway are glass boxes, grand arches marking the gateway to a city whose second-hand emissions of consumption bubble in my gut. SONY. Long vines hang from their rafters. DELL. There are bombs hidden in the dirt. Their roots begin to wrap around the wires. H&M. K.F.C. Red roofs nestled in the hills.

Let’s talk about the Twin Towers. That was an act that propelled Americans to encourage war—a monumental event that caused a shift in ideology. I don’t know if it matters that people are accepting.

The means of production are streams of confetti, raining down on postmodern warriors who believe this is enough. Would people need to be accepting?

I think of explosions and the way that people come together when things fall apart.
