A brand new square. A new plaza. A new platz.
A place for parades and coronations:
Wenceslas, Tiananmen, Tahrir, Gezi, Zucotti, La Bastille…
A place for barricades and an army of one (or many).
A place for chance encounters and ephemeral markets.
A place to kiss and coo and soothe a skinned knee.
Eat gelato and drink espresso,
and in seasons of strife, trays of lovely cut lemons.
