Focal point


Today I follow the city streets
Down to the horizon, with my eyes
Learn what looms there
Spadina cleaves for Knox College
St. Mary keeps watch over Adelaide West
And famed, faddish Yonge Street
Stretches on and on, endless

Silly daily missions, necessary
To keep my thoughts anchored to the present
Not drifting up to the barbed future like
Balloons popping on your stucco ceiling.
