New (Poem 329)

Tumbling lines 
of curvaceous 
skyscrapers pushed
this way and that
by black patent 
leather reflecting 
the sky    bands of 
brass and grasses 
Norwegian pine and 
glass    blue steel 
sequins glinting 
in the sun    no corners 
no cornices no clay    
powder maize peach 
and mint    cool 
liquid Jordan almond 
candy poured 
sweet and creamy    
making every side 
the sunny side of the 
newly paved streets
