Vancouver-2016-13

Imagine, a scorching, humid
summer on the coast:

red cedar, hemlock, maple
massive structures the
millennial witnesses
blotting out Sol’s warmth
fragrant, bountiful terrain
below on forest floor
home, life, lungs to earth, air, sea

steel concrete, money, glass
massive structures the
millennium witnesses
blotting out Sol’s warmth
noxious, bountiful landscape
below, plain, spoiled streets
home, life, end to earth, air sea
