i find it
mildly amusing,
this art of spatial relations.

people migrate 
to this big city 
from far off places
with wide open spaces.

to live here, not there:

in Missouri, the Dakotas,
Ohio, Arizona, Minnesota.

And yet when presented, 
with an option for open air 
amid the sea and sky, 

i can't help but wonder why 
they feel compelled 
in this sweltering 
98 degree heat

to sit one 
on top 
of the other
feet to feet.
