New construction, half this city
is empty, prematurely gutted.

Dark blocks, wide swaths of light
and the knife-edge of a night,

designed for carving.
Such an uncomfortable

clarity that comes
at these hours,

hurtling blindly at a great rate
of speed, every second falling free

from the world until the earth
rolls up again to meet our feet .
