Everywhere

Inside the World Trade Centre in New York City
Inside the World Trade Centre in New York City

Scattered and messy

as sea shells on sandy beach

human blobs on earth

The view

A glass window stands

between me and world beyond

my family home


That’s not the view from my home (ha, I wish). It’s downtown Chicago, as seen from the 84th floor of a rather small building—by Chicago’s standards. The window wasn’t too clean, but I like that it serves as a reminder of the barrier.
