Cities and suburbs, real and imaginary.

watch for flowers

all these flowers rising from the ruins would not exist if the tractors hadn't come to strip the earth naked. sunflower seeds sleep in the dust, hiding between the roots for the scrapes to come and cause the bloom. they are not the only kind of flower like that.

then, the tractors come again and lay concrete and build walls, and the flowers are stripped away.

flowers that wait for ruin only to die when the ruin ends. the only flowers left are the pipes rising up from the earth like industrial roots.
