Greeting Dawn

This poem is what I have

Out at night

A light, burning bright, naked bulb

Over the road

Detainees held terror-style

Cameras aimed at our yard pointlessly

Invade this space without meaning to

Unintended violation, Invisible bodies

Up over there

A million watts gets done

Showing off perfect visions, luxe attainment, coat cut close

Looking up a pinnacled pyramid

To the stars of Shangri-La

Down on the street, we bounce tax credits

To the mini-shard

Inter-Continental flow built on a story of up liftment

Free of the gaze of the state

I, knowing the names of 9 Billion

Stay up to watch the sunrise

Wishing for a darkened sky

To greet it
