The social danger of imagination

Came across this incidental cubist masterpiece while walking the other day


A visual analogy for inner-city living smashed into the pavement.

Two days later, just to put me in my place, this one jumped out at me


The danger is not that we’ll fall through the grate,
But this grating metaphor cannot abate,
For the perpetual dreamer is someone to fear,
Should we be afraid?
I am not clear.
