Tuesday, August 25, 2009: Quoted from: today and tomorrow


For I have looked up at the steep, towering buildings

Forming the maze of the city,

And have been sent reeling,

Have felt the street tilt and pull away from my feet

The sheer grade of its stone face

Tipping the horizon on its axis


  1. I really really like this.

    There are some poets are afraid of writing anything that includes anything 'modern' because it no longer, then, is universal.

    But I think a poem like this has a kind of universality about it.

  2. I felt the dizziness reading this poem. Looking up at the new SFU building in Gastown.

  3. I really like your poem. This line is awesome:

    "Have felt the street tilt and pull away from my feet"

    Yes, I felt the dizziness, too. I like it when words do that to me.

    Sorry it took me so long to come over and say hello. It's nice to meet you. You have a great site.
