I Look at “Pretty Concrete”


Pretty concrete 

wet in its fresh newness

would shine a shiny wet

 

and acquire lines

and then lines of dots

before setting.

 

We’d lift the protective wood

and make our mark.

 

Initial the future.

 

(I look at this little detail of childhood

and wonder why

these small perfections

have assumed such importance for me.

Well, half wonder.)
