This is a love story between the city and sky, with endless flirting as she winks a purple eyelash over the horizon bidding goodnight, with endless wooing as he launches fireworks to be plucked like flowers reached up to a balcony, with endless courting, as he carves patterns in the soil, draws crosses for kisses, threads bridges over his cracks to fix his faults, for her. And she tosses her wisps of clouds like strands of hair, and she beckons him with the secrets she’s longing to share, her planets, her comets, and falling stars. They have not reached each other yet. But at the end of every day, she knocks him off his feet, overawes him with oceans of pixeled endlessness. [Pete Bradt]
