Poem for Today : ' '

Building Site

Look upward at men
in yellow hats
climbing skyward
on iron scaffold;
brewing tea
on what will be
the second floor,
and more —
for on the third,
beside the long
wooden planks
forming shuttering,
and down-pipes
and guttering,
amid the mass
of concrete contusion,
there stands,
rusting brown,
paint-scarred red,
a singularly plain
corrugated shed.
