Sedentary Drift

© Matthew Word Bain

the movement of these clouds
trust me, they are moving
is in a sort of temporal
harmony with the
movement of
life in
this
industrial
neighborhood
largely unchanged
on the surface
for decades
but changing
if imperceptibly
each moment
settling into
routines
already
settled into
for years prior
such that changes
might be hard to see
without looking away
and then looking again
