The Fantasy of a Mechanical God

Madison Square Park

"New York is unreal. A simple tree is more real than it.
It is the fantasy of a mechanical God.
New York is a monster furiously disemboweled by men like maggots.
Had religion given rise to it, what would we sincerely think of this religion?"
Jean Toomer, A Jean Toomer Reader: Selected Unpublished Writings
