Concrete Wilderness  - by Lee Ferron

if only concrete were just a bit softer
and more malleable
then we could shape it
to better fit our aspirations
and sense of humor

or at least free ourselves
of the constraints
our forebears placed upon us.

as it stands
we can only go upward
which gets kinda boring
and is actually more absurd
than malleable concrete
if you really think about it.
