Misleading buildings

ย  ย Crystal-spitted, acting as mirrors of the streets,

Argentinian Buildings stand alongside each others;

no signs of being discrete.

Unamusingly beside their post-modernist street companions

Lie multiple other French baroque-style

Eminent edifices.

Yet I truly desire to unravel,

How come strolling along a sidewalk

Can comprise such an abrupt travel

Through various historic periods

All the while feeling like an aristocrat

Within a city whose great majority is the middle class?

One same block with multiple dimensions of time,

Inaccurately represented

Being dominated only by one social stand.

It is a country

as an example of multiple others,




And Baroque-like architecture

All-together in one post-modernist era

Still dominated by the representation of the monarchy

During the Renaissance.

  1. I like the fact that you could so accurately and beautifully describe a phenomenon that can not only be seen in Argentina, but in different parts of the world. Thank you.
