A gray sky day,

comforting, glowering.

CAUTION falling rocks 

is what the sign says

at the site next door,

mass excavation.

Some ivy vine or
sort of tree

is revealed to be climbing
the wall of the building

that is staying, for now,
in flat 2D, charcoal,

with just a hint of relief–
it looks like rivers

it looks like veins
it looks like life does

find a way,
just so often hidden,

not as showy
as the brassy machines

ringing out from
the construction pit

too deep now
too see to the bottom,

just negative space
and an impartial sky
