“It’s Free” Rain

And then came the deluge–following an endless brooding–and everything was once again, alright. The past two months of suffocating and over-baked habitat of this town had received its reprieve, and became livable.

The Institution

Brown tiles and tanned walls—

Seats and sculptures in shades of gray—

The institution sits

On heavy, concrete bricks.

 

Full of rigid corners and

Filtrate air—

That which so asphyxiates,

 

The institutions build

Big, burial grounds

Over Intellects.
