Don’t want to be made of cardboard–
Or of feathers blown away.
Nor Gorilla Glue, or staples–holding me in sway.
Don’t want foundations faulty–
Or cornerstones that cringe.
It’s sturdy dreams I’m after—that will hold and not unhinge!

The wide expanse is like a pond of icy glass
I can see the sky’s reflection in the stone
And the trickling ribbons of light are like fingers of newness
As I tilt my head to look sideways, I see symmetry
Lines reflecting lines and clouds that are bookends
With rainbows hiding behind the concrete history
The quiet of the early dawn soothes the soul
And the lone worker seems like poetry in motion
As his left-to-right routine removes the traces of yesterday’s crowds
A person’s work can seem mundane to themselves
But from this perspective it is an act of beauty
His frame upon this street of solitude has become a work of art

From the funnel
From the tunnel
From cascading fright
From the ashes
From the caskets
From the dead of night
Came the whirlwind
Came the image
Came the eyes of hope
From the edge, and
From the brink
I stand. I live. I cope.
