These are neither wild lands nor urban, but feral cultivations, with traces of human intention half rubbed out by a dirty eraser, then used for something else, and then, forgotten. An inevitable sweetness and dignity arises from this survival, from being useful, from being next to beauty and so passed over, and so, freed.
