Through this open gap trees converge.
They are locked inside medians and are planning their escape. Beneath the pavement their roots run wild to disrupt stability. From the bottom up they work against the surface, cracking the hard unnatural ground. It is as if they have been inviting the rain all winter long to dive through the cracks – expand then contract – and eat away at the soil. All the while hoping that before repairs are made they could break free for a moment, touch the spring air, and be wild once again.
