Buildings Are Fine


Because It is December 6 Today

Your buildings are fine

The structures you dream of

The pillars you erect

The monuments you demolish

The rubble, the concrete, the bare

Memories of places and times

Baked in bricks

Churned in concrete

Reinforced in steel

Reduced into dust

And ashes

And perhaps a tear

Your buildings are fine

The magnificence transient

The glory a lie

The legacy a trap

And the pain that lingers

And lingers

And lingers on

Your buildings are fine

But the people

It’s the people

Who are not okay

Not anymore

Not in a long time
