Laughing, we walked along the street

In summer
with concrete spewing heat
back into the air
on the street
the builders
take what was
and remove it
now no more
pounding and pounding
dust the air
Laughing as we walked
watching the once mighty fall
looking upon the last works
of Osmandius (thank you Percy)!
the last mighty works
that falling
change into birds
and leaping back into the air
gather round us laughing
walking with us with that strange
bird waddle
and stranger still bird
echoing with the sounds
of concrete falling
and heat rising from the concrete
to create a warm front
meeting a hard ground
shattering into
shards that
becoming birds
loop endlessly
in the rising heat
and we laugh
as we walk along the street.
