#24 - In February

 In February


Where is my plateau?

I can look down

yet still feel so far below.


glaring down at me,

through the visage of double paned glass.

The Romans had many victories

in downtown New York, or

so we are led to believe. 


Now holographic brick paneled

in two dimensions makes me feel

like part of a pop-up book,

and the weightless matter in the distance

makes the sky seem so far away.

So shine down pitiful Sun;

for air conditioning units serve no purpose

in February.
