Bulldozers move over the earth like an eraser.

This sandy soil gives up the legs of homes.

A Senator smiles. Our lack of hope's to blame.

Yet even here, just turn a corner in the Loop

and the fall of prairie light remains the same.

From his high office on Michigan Avenue

he looks down on Millennium Park to see

the silver Bean, the fountain and a twisted

bridge. They look like polished toys to him,

not the brave pose of men confused in time.
