Industrial Twilight

An after-dinner walk with the Flaneur through not entirely deserted streets.

 Union Machine Works built like a brick steel house
Protruding girders represent structural testosterone

Windows like missing teeth, 
Dig the herringbone skylight


 Nervous systems

An approach to the Port of Oakland
 in back of the real,
Homage to Trevor Paglen

A windowless building,
one of Cheney's hideaways

 The moment after a train passes

The decisive moment
watching the sky turn violet for some time
the clouds parted and I stood up to capture it

Only a suggestion of the colors
purple clouds and indigo sky over the spectral yacht
the Ferry landing where the vessels sleep
