1 New Poem

City Blueprints

There still panics the crystalline glow
of Mac's Milk CIBC instant teller
flickers, hearts pounding a pulse
increased by measure stick, pressure cup,
bitter over stage-fright sweats, nothing
you were

calmly embarked, canoeing clank,
river's middle in the ever-flowing
effervescence of time, clinging to
branch and vine before the concrete
poured, the gun powder bleached,
boots trammeled

the navy blue shimmer, chest medal
and all we wore in splendour ignorance,
all vestige tumult spilling down the
stoplight corridor crossing, Popsicle
stick and chewing gum twine in
living construction.
