"I became a writer
because I had to become something," I tell the skyscrapers.
The skyscrapers say nothing and reflect light off of one another.
It's just as well.
they were not made for me.
they were made for higher dividends
whiter collars
yesser men.
in the final, parting gasps of urban fabric
i wonder if the children in all those high up hospital beds
can see the stars
