I tell ya, it’s been repugnantly hot and cloudless in the city of Philadelphia this week, so to see this these two weary travelers perched atop a roiling marble, I’m filled with a kind of cosmic camaraderie. It’s like these two space oddities refuse to sink into the amber of history, eager to chase to horizon, never gently. It’s a striking image that only hints at the otherworldly strange making camp inside.
