Tuesday poem #2 : Megan Kaminski : Cityscape

Buildings accentuate their mastery of gray
swept skies      turn over page after page
this time the south drawn blank
drained of sea and fever  how many hours
trained to listen speaking through gestures of
hands and neck   like a theory of something without it
being shown              
            on streets below billboards billow flagrant
affection for Belgian chocolate and belted shoes
we want drawers to empty cop to some conclusion
fill our own pockets with more than blueprints
