The foot of the giant goddess
balances on North America, the ball
smothers Chicago. Toes of the other
skim the Atlantic. Mother
Nature's enemy.
1935, the World's Fair. A Century
of Progress means Industry, means
Technology. Arms reach up
and out, say Look. Voila.
A plane heads for her hip.
Beams of light project
from skyscrapers. Shades of gold
and gray and turqiouse
drown out brown, green.
