City by Angel Gonzalez

things glisten. roof tiles rise
over the tree tops.
almost to the breaking point, tense,
the resilient streets.
there you are: beneath the intersection
of metallic cables,
where the sun fits like a halo
complimenting your image.
rapid swallows threaten
impassive facades. glass
transmits luminous and secretive
messages.
everything consists of brief, invisible
gestures for habitual eyes.
and suddenly you’re not there.
good-bye, love, good-bye.
you’re already gone.
nothing remains of you.
the city rotates:
grinder in which everything is undone.
