The View From Here

The skyline of my childhood,
And the backdrop of my life.
Always there. Due east, my compass set.

When I look across the river
I still see them standing there
In all their glorious modern majesty.

When I look across the river
I still see what isn’t there.
A faint outline of the way it used to be.

It was the skyline of my childhood
It was the backdrop of my life
It’s always there. Due east. Never forget.
