D.C.~by Paul F. Lenzi





“Washington DC Skyline” by Michael Tompsett

grand structures
of limestone and granite
civic citadels
splendid and squalid
with privilege

grand structures
shield sinister motives
and unsanctioned power
preserving illusions
of republic

grand structures
presenting distress
cracked façades
mourned by masons
of liberty
