POEM: "The Day After Tomorrow"

The Day After Tomorrow

The building blocks shall
largely cover every place
except for that space between

Where the occasional sky opens up
below of course lie city streets
that people follow everywhere

Mirrored windows so sealed against
neither hearts nor storms
can shine on lively forms        

How did everything get so bad
does any ever change into
a thing approaching freedom

Only now I don’t know where to go
or what I need to write down
to whom and why and when

You say everything leads me to you
except the sky above
and all the sky below.
