River that Runs Both Ways

"I wonder whether, if aliens dropped down in their spaceship
 right now, right here, on this rooftop, and they looked out over all of New York, the Emerald City, the Promised Land, gleaming around us, would they think, 'What a piece of work is man,' or 'What a fucking piece of work is man'or would the aliens, in their infinite wisdom, with their intergalactic travel and their spaceships and their telekinesis and their superior intelligence, would they understand, would they know, that we are a river that runs both ways?"
Dana Czapnik, The Falconer
