still life with post office

January 15, 2023

a city where the mail is generally irrelevant
the wedding cake post office sits
sombre and impassive
well lit to pick out the
architectural features
mustard yellow and white bread white

like a guard dog in masonry
looking out over passing humans
wrapped in tins
balancing on gasoline ponies

with everything else cropped out
it stands noble and without affect
until the morning
but that is hours away
