City Dream

This is the place
of my dream: the tall
buildings, and on this side
nothing, or trees, or a backwards sky.

I know I walked here,
but I was going the other way—
the colors were less intense, and
someone was walking with me,

not singing "Love is Wonderful,"
not bursting into song,
not with a new apartment,
mysterious and unseen.
