Monoliths From a Distant Past - Chrysler Building - New York City- By Vivienne Gucwa
We kept pieces of the old cities in place to remind us of a time when we were bound to the earth.
Their buildings stood empty yet proud: monoliths constructed in a time when wonder could be extracted from the tiniest of glimpses into an unexplored sky.
They stood there: remnants of times when white clouds were all that was plentiful and when our faces replicated themselves temporarily onto their gleaming facades.
While the rest of the world pushed forward under red skies dotted with emulsified exhaust, we stopped to take in a view of a distant past.
And I scratched our memories into the sky with an old key.
