The Architect

The Architect

buildings were once turgid /

perpendicular to the earth /

starving catwalks of brick /

the Tower of London a pelvis / abdominals / a dick /

gesturing starkly /

I am a stiff / hard / construct /

look up to me while I take your sky /

 

now / villages have stretch marks /

houses grow hairs /

breasts rest on rooftops /

skyscrapers are soft / so weak / so tissue /

a horizon of twinkling dresses /

Buckingham Palace looks like a vagina /

the flesh of this building belongs /

the flesh of this building belongs /

the flesh of this building belongs /
