<nettime> a black rainbow over new orleans

.. new orleans as bellona:


I could see the bridge all the way to the second stanchion. Here and there
clouds had torn away from the black sky. Something was burning down between
the waterfront buildings. We rushed across fifty feet of pavement. Just
before the bridge mouth, it looked like someone had grenaded the road. A
slab of asphalt practically fifteen feet high jutted up. Down the crack
around it, you could see wet pipes, and below that, flickering water. Above,
that amazing, loud lightning formed its searing nodes among the cloud
canyons. [Dhalgren, Samuel R. Delaney, p. 874.]

I'd post here, but it includes images.
