downtown

Every city is an opportunity; every building is a future.

Orange hand, bright man, downtown’s powerful command.

Taxis abate time’s fate.

Clothes make the town — tatters, ties, rags and gowns.

In a just city, everyone may wear cuffs.

Downtown’s semiotic tags are backpacks, briefcases, purses and bags.

Steel cliffs, concrete canyons, asphalt rivers — downtown gives nature the shivers.

Trees deliver the country to the city.

The city is a street where people cross but never meet.

Parking is now a destination.

Strange, stranger and the strangest, the city collects and arranges.
