The East Village

IN THE SHADOW OF THE CORNER 1. On Church Street, at the ATT monolith, that the Polish intellectuals once mistook for a political detention center, I finally saw the missing Towers. Weeks after i stopped looking for them, i stepped around the corner & was caught full on in the sun's glare. 2. Pale Blue Sky -- Bright Sun 3. Eyes cast down in reflex now upon reflextion as if in reverence. The imprecition of any action, & the description of that action as imprecise as language allows. Where once their brooding prescience beat you down, their persistent lack. In place of polished steel filigree & dark smoky glass
