New York City skyline at night

Whoever is here should be quiet now.
Whoever's thoughts have drawn up a chart
to the headwaters of the self's image
should set it down.
Look - what if we're going nowhere?
What if time is our most famous fabrication?
Up there, somewhere, all our longings...

—Anne Coray, "Of the North"
