Poem 47

We built a city
Around rocks and ruins
Stone by stone
They rise they fall
But we built a city
With rot in the middle
Half broken bottles
Well wandered shoes
We built a city
Where men marched onward
Forward, downward,
Stones falling groundward.
This is where we built a city
This is where the rubble lies.
