Build your city round

Leah Meryl Harmon

 

When your breaking the stale bread

into the broth
build your city round

When your suitcases are left on the side of

the road
build your city round

When the hurricane winds tear at your corners

build your city round

When the vertical gardens and the red flowers

bloom
build your city round

When the bridges are floating build your city round

When the bridges between mountains are made out of glass

build your city round

When the breakers
are crashing on the

waves of rain
build your city round

When you drop
your grandmothers diamonds

and they show up even brighter in your daughter’s light

build your city round build your city round

build your city round
