They have buried the earth under an ocean of concrete.
I cannot see her face.
I cannot hear her voice. I cannot touch her.
These mammoth constructions of steel, glass and concrete crowd and overwhelm me.
None of these buildings is made of the stone of earth.
They cast their shadows over me and chill me to the bone.
I cannot see the sun.
I am lost in this place.
And I want to go home.
