Not a levee

The I-walls in New Orleans couldn’t hold back the floods. They weren’t deep enough, they weren’t strong enough, they weren’t steady enough.

There were those engineers that knew the walls couldn’t handle it.

If I had to guess, I’d say there are many of those engineers who have seen their relationships fail, their lives disintegrate, and have had to move to temporary housing. If I had to guess, I’d say they probably never connected their home and their work.
