A city understood as a fact, undeniable. Whether it is "central" or not is rendered irrelevant by late capitalism, postmodernity. That there is no escape from the city and, whether we name the chapter or not, it has conquered us. The question now seems to be, How does one live within unbreakable bounds? No use spending time on dismantling "evil" since it already thrives on our energy. Instead, writing words hopelessly can assuage nothingness. Writing hopelessly at least is possible. These facts change by the minute. Next year, we'll think again about topography. Map ourselves. Make sense. Dissolve traffic.
