used to be


by Mike O’Connell

there used to be buildings
at end of that avenue
tallest of the tall
appearing to waver
on the hottest
of the hottest days
like great alien ships
landing with a wobble
on crowded shores
all look up
to the edge of the sky
how long such things
can stand
the elements
and fury
