The River Still Flows

The tower crane preening its wings
Stoops to the stones
Machines picking history clean
Sift through the bones

Of desolate stories
With derelict meanings
In the bowels of the city
Where the past still lies dreaming
Of cruciform churches
And Gothic cathedrals
Of borders and boundaries
Protected by ritual

The night falls down over us all
From the mirror glass towers
To the long ancient halls
And all this time
The river still flows
No purpose and no reason why
But to mirror the stars

Clean picture perfect facades
Hide the wealth of old scars
The city glaze blocks out the light
And swallows the stars

Slow urban creep reaches out to the edges
Of greenbelts that long held the secrets of ages
Under the asphalt lie the needs of the city
Where modern desires are designed by committee

But the night falls down over us all
From the Mirror glass towers
To the long ancient halls
All this time
The river still flows
No purpose and no reason why
But to mirror the stars
