How pyloneriffically exquisite!
The bleak yet ever so charming simplicity of the parallel lines, red like the fire of the heart, pointing skywards in an almost defiant, stand-offish gesture against the chains of modern society. Its very angular and simplistic structure seems to reference the art of select ancient civilisations such as Egypt and Aztec, hinting at a religious significance of some sort which reinforces the pointed tip, overall creating what some may dare to interpret as a callback to the ancient times of polydeitic worship, disguised as a necessity of the electrical society and yet still standing strong in a gesture which has to be admired for its audacity.
I applaud your taste, Pylon of the Month.
