old man yells at clouds

the same basic
blueprint exists
for the series of
one way streets
in a typical big city
downtown is a warren
of rat tunnels
half chewed through
the yellow bricks
all exactly the same
with new marquees
and construction
to fuck it all up
small roads made
even smaller by
concrete barricades
in uneven lines
changing topography
faster than the
satellites can track

all wrapped in a bow
with congested overpasses
proving the shortest
distance between two objects
is to just not go

mankind does not deserve
a flying car
we would just fuck up
a perfectly open sky
exerting an overabundance
of idiotic engineering
over cerulean delusion
and frankly
the birds deserve better
