A Subtlety: by Kara Walker


What word does one use these days,                                     when something is truly awesome?


The old Domino Sugar factory of Brooklyn, burnt years ago, and before getting demolished, this is its last hurrah: a cathedral on the sacred sucre.


A sublime statement of history,


Made from the almighty cane, by Kara Walker,


And the strength of the poor who built the industry.


Standing there is much like being born again,                                       only with eyes wide open.

Two days left: Saturday and Sunday, July 5th and 6th.  Don’t miss it!
