WRECKING BALL
New York: itŐs like any town just more.

Developers waited two years for Jones Diner

surrounding it with old retaining wall.

Drove up gloaming Lafayette Street.

So few have survived but nostalgia

is a useless emotion for an often useless

world that enjoyed no such golden age.

You could be naming animals in a garden.

Thunder in the window.

Siren off a highway.

The next battle in a history of battles

defining new boy tastes for gadgets.

A helicopter in the sky.

Every attendent at the gas station looks up.

Buy a pig nose from Halloween Adventure

to be General Porky Franks tomorrow.

"Evil minds that plot destruction."

Recycled railcar cheap lunch demolished.

Incoming chic downtown luxury loft living.
