This Dissolving City

December 10, 2012

The city is dissolving today.

Dissolving city.

Dissolving city.

What happened to New Jersey? It’s gone.

The Once (and future?) View of New Jersey from Riverside Park.

New Jerseyites, are you out there? Did the Rapture come and take you away, leaving behind this dissolving city.

City of dissolution dissolves.

The Hudson River, too, is gone.

Once, a river ran through it.

Once, a river ran through it.

Buildings and water towers are disappearing.

Water towers and buildings fade away.

Water towers and buildings fade away.

People appear out of the void.

Where do you come from?

Where do you come from?

Then slip back into nothingness.

Where are you going?

Where are you going?

No birds sing, no squirrel stirs.

Squirrel drey in the mist.

Bare branches with squirrel drey.

Very strange. Very strange, indeed.
