#10 Night Visions I

Yes, there are places where night is more night, with shadows confused with bodies and objects. All things moving around there appear to be projections of a hidden reality.

In those lanes, for example. In those inner lanes that great blocks of buildings create and compress, there is a hidden, imperceptible life. It is necessary to enter through the dark to feel that pulse. Behind these lanes, the streets are wide, well-lit, with light calculated to project the exuberance of the large shops and give the neons and appearances room to breathe.

The city lives on these contrasts. Without ceremony, it accommodates the freedom of the powerful and, at the same time, the slavery of the men tied to work that slowly consumes them. Disfiguring them. Until they become invisible to others.
