skid and swerve

Theresa Sotto

to the outpost for some picture-
taking all seven lanes under
our tiny pace along the pavement
over all the people over there
going is the hold-fast below
us on the over pass: our watching stance
still here above the pavement a sky-
line up in the background where the people are
there all the scenes are gadget-full and many-
textured: the downtown lofts displayed by
all the people in the glossies
what they've done with the place: see
for yourself the elevator: the convenience of
glass observatories we take
pictures of vessels in vessels
over all seven lanes: our tiny pace
