What Makes This Art?

© Matthew Word Bain

a panoply of angles
and a complex set of curves
where the orthogony of the builder
encounters the topography of the earth

this built landscape mature enough
to have become a three dimensional palimpsest
the intentions of the original authors
relevant no more to the needs
of contemporary tenants
