provisional future #3

provisional future #3

Driving through the desert I am on the edge of space. Bleak, barren landscapes stretch up toward the sky; pylons reach for the stars; road unrolls as steadily and evenly as the contrail of a rocket ship, a copper wire, a smoking chimney. To our sci-fi future: it is here. Here in the desert where moon-scape meets advanced industry. Where ingenuity and engineering tame and harnesses rivers, where railroad cages the open landscape and shrinks it as to our will, where the future is tested and designed and developed and built and stands over us, monolithic, secretive, hidden in the wide, wide, open, behind the beautiful barren landscape, within the ugly, barren lives, and just beyond reach of today.
