Second Avenue Subway Station@96th St. Artworks by Sarah Sze
As you fly swiftly underground
with a song in your ears
or lost in the maze of a book,
remember the ones who descended here
into the mire of bedrock
to bore a hole through this granite,
to clear a passage for you
where there was only darkness and stone
Remember there was only darkness and stone.
Remember as you come up into the light.
Second Avenue Subway Station@63th St. Artworks by Jean Shin
당신이 이어폰으로 노래를 들으며
지하로 잽싸게 날아갈 때
혹은 독서삼매경에 빠져 있을 때,
이 화강암에 구멍을 파기위해
여기서 암반 더미 속으로 내려간 사람들을,
오로지 암흑과 돌뿐이었던 곳에
당신을 위해 통로를 내기위해.
빛으로 올라오면서 그들을 기억하라.
