“The Medes came closer, past larger landings, signs of habitation, more switches, electrical wires, lighthouses warning of weak-railed patches, & nasty rocks & reefs & pylons spreading and electrifying certain rails for trains that could run on that current, & then trains themselves, suddenly, shuffling or motionless, trains of every possible kind ranged around a great rocky land.  On its shore, a city.  A place of towers & an architecture of scrapyard ingenuity and awe.”
