Two Sides of Samara


end of the boardwalk.
many lights from buildings
illuminate the water below.
windows of glass, buildings
of steel, cleanly painted,
well kept, lived in.

other end:
one light.
peeling paint, old signs.
a warehouse, occupied when,
i do not know. no furniture
inside, probably just equipment.
a lifeless boat floats
next to it.

no flash, no pomp, just
the port powering the city
across the way, just the port
the city conveniently
forgets about today.
