Apartments (2006)

Now Available:

these apartments look mint after
coffee, come-hither

stretched out of function

maximum sunlight

beatific baby squeezing

fists in buggy

you could be active in one,
silhouette a window


Over-caffeinated, your projects push
out across the city views


tackled by suited
agent’s faux-mild eye

what not to say


switch to night, window
lights coded on and off

city angels leave calling cards

digital angels find and replace

the Malay hotel with flamingos
guarding the entrance

highrises stand over
your first dizzy upward eyes

the lives of strangers
find and replace you


you didn’t paint people in
towers like these
as a four-year-old;

though these are perhaps like that
uppermost panel of blue sky
in a kid’s painting

petalled sun,
thought-shaped clouds
