07/25/2012: SHADOW TOWER

a large wooden structure with arching planks and rotting bridges, flowing up into the abyss, lifted upon platforms. i was sifting through crowds of masked people talking about nothing and watching puppets on stages which hung from long chains. at the top was a door which led to a secret “compartment” of the tower and contained a large arena filled with debris, surrounded by upright screens which had shadows jumping between them. they were strangely lit and had images of cities on them. the shadows were laughing.
