Captive Spaces

5 comments

Walking past city gardens locked within their fences,

I see my old friends—plants and buildings who once

reached out to me, now safe from those who would

defile them. Soaring spaces dreamed by architects,

living landscapes designed to bring our desert closer—

their arms outstretched through cold steel bars as if

clutching at the sky—now held like convicts in the

prisons of our failed imagination.
