[URBANIZATION]

high rises
sky scrapers
is it human
ambition?
reaching up
or is it too
crowded here?
glass buildings
how fragile
are we?
always under
(orange)
construction
and repair
grey city
can’t escape?
the concrete
paved roads
and the traffic
and the noise
and the litter
contrast
with nature
which was
(sometimes)
buried or
covered
when we laid
foundations?
of concrete
cold hard grey
and when we
stretched out
spanning wires
and constructed
tall structures
over our heads?
street signs
directionality
where are we
now going?
