The City of Titans

The city came alive at night, the buildings on my left and right were leaning out across the vacuous chasms of vast thoroughfares, seeking the comfort and acknowledgment of their neighbors: steel, glass, and concrete awakening from the long sleep of earth, knowing that the cityscapes were slowly swerving toward that ineffable moment – a singular point of no return, when the dark transports between sentience and sapience would take on the allure of surface tensions and intelligence; and the secret life of these monstrous structures would once again take on that that dark power at the heart of the mindless cosmos, and become the equivalent of ancient Titans striding the night cities like feral beasts conquering a new world.
