concrete

Snapshot_032b.jpg

I’m ok with people laughing
at my fondness for straight lines
and right-angled corners
set in concrete designs.
I acknowledge that these buildings
haven’t stood the test of time
and in forty years of rainfall
have gone grey with streaks of grime
but look beyond the stains and see
how once upon a future
a torn and crumpled county
needed hope within its suture
amidst the flying cars and robots
structures standing strong
rising from the dust of war
correcting all the wrong
forgive those rushed designers
they gave us what we needed
and now we tear their buildings down
their vision superseded
