An interview with the cranes on top of the Freedom Tower, whose names are Mel and Gilgamesh

February 2, 2013
How did you get all the way up here?

Mel: I wanted to be a swan, but I was born here instead.

Gilgamesh: Elevator.

What’s your favorite part of the day?

Mel: Pretending to be a swan.

Gilgamesh: Sunset.

How does it feel to be working on the Freedom Tower?

Mel: I’d have been a prouder swan.

Gilgamesh: Ironic.

Play any music while you work?

Mel: Swan Lake.

Gilgamesh: No.

What are you going to do next?

Mel: Swan dive.

Gilgamesh: (shrugs) Taxi-driver?

Anything else?

Mel: Nope.

Gilgamesh: Advice for the weary: The opposite of love isn’t hate, it’s indifference.
