from the Bonaventure Hotel

A marvelous phantasm-
the pulleys slither down,
each capsule submerged,
an intricate trance
of rising and falling;
from the tenth floor
the sliding brass gazelles
relinquish their glitter
to the night sky;
promiscuous teeth
enveloping hot wire,
these buildings
transcend, then unmake
their own kind.
