What makes a city, a college, a movie theater…? What molds their soul? I asked. I was ten. Now I wonder what moulds the soul of the repressed, the insolence of nations, the mouthpieces that tell us and are told to do things, and now I wonder how I came to be frail and muffled and yet I'm on the other side of the world's binaries, alongside the changing figures that see me in the shadows and the bright light of day.

    I like the word play on mold/mould. Brief but satisfying.
    Thank you, Greg.
    Interesting. But, what does make a city?
