Construction

Photo by Ife Williams

They drive up and down with dump

trucks and shovels, the hole so deep,

they disappear below the surface at the bottom.

When they dynamite to break up

the granite, you can feel it under your feet.

Thirty feet deep and forty feet long,

they bore under the corner of the parking

lot to meet the thirty by thirty foot hole

next to the front door.

All in the name of progress.
