Observation - November 5th, 2020, Tuesday

 Coffee on the terrace of the penthouse


Morning on 49th Street, Radio City


Rockefeller Plaza, a few hundred feet away


Columns of concrete, glass and steel push up into the powder blue sky


Green-copper spires reflected in mirrors one thousand feet tall


Their soft patina wavering in the sunlight



A curious pigeon comes to greet me



The sounds of the city are pressing


A steady drone of HVAC permeates the atmosphere


Sirens wail and saws whine, over the drone of engines


As the arhythmic clang of steel on steel fills the air with hollow waves


While all around me hammers fall


The city hums with a ghostly bustle
