Ekphrastic Poem by Seth Redford - Photo by Uriel Barron

City shows the bright future

Each dream being accomplished a difficult endeavor

Because the crowds feel jello

Cars and people like passing each step, trapped


Buildings look

Claustrophobic sardines compounded

The sky, openness too far, failed to find

Relief, Never-end blue


Buildings like a pathway of dreams

Challenge, claustrophobic

Dreams accomplished,

Dreams hurt
