long ago now

as the bombs struck
the 1910 train station
there i was
shining shoes
see all the dust and slo mo debris
watch how i fell into
the cornerstone box
under the tall falling column
it saved me
so i could see the new station
rise up like a flower
stripped of all ornamentation
blue and red
now we can watch the movie there
you, father, and i
sit in folding chairs
and all those soundtrack echoes
are almost too much
