The Sky in a Square

Squares on top of squares,

the many shacks that lined

the city circumference ;

the sky above her city at dusk

shrunk into a blue square on the wall

in each of them.

The city with all its lights and sounds

shrunk to fit in her window frame,

and her square soul stared at it starry-eyed.

The squares of blue,

her eyes stitched

into the sky that spread above

the city that never loved her.
