Wearing Winter (Wiesbaden)



Rectangle up, rectangle down.

Cage constructed, workers hurry away.

Plans are like pages of manuscripts; architects should sign their names.

The owner should sign them. Imagine spending all that money and not getting a signature building.


Each building is weighty and alone.

Stores inside sell things in boxes.

People in office boxes carry briefcases—

boxes within boxes.

The air is boxed in; the elevator

walls define its box.

There's a hardness about these that lets them be suspended.

Box lunch can be eaten in the patio.

The pigeons bring circles to these boxes.



Wearing Winter

( Wiesbaden )


The people of this town walk around with damp underwear.

Light rain dampens the spreadout undies.

How good Wiesbadeners feel putting on misty underthings.

A visitor says, "Get a dryer,"

and they reply, in German: “It’s not done.”
