the modernist past...

there is history to be had beneath the starry dome,
sequestered in elderly cabinets dimly lit...

fading away in the worn wings of concrete lace,
to linger to bury to pass on by and look beyond...

through the teary glass the unreachable growth,
flooding a courtyard of curvilinear silences...

the ancient rain insisting, hidden caverns revealing,
moth-tattered chinese pardons neon flickering meta-nouns...
