renovation
song zijiang (chris song zijiang)

after all, that vacant weed-strewn block couldn’t
escape the crude fate of development

now it’s fenced by corrugated iron sheets
excavators behind, like iron cows
have ploughed the land to a mass
green has become red

sunlight scorching
smoke seems to spurt out of the red mud
twisting the images of these diggers
demonizing them

a blast of wind blows

a mass of white petals
gone to ground

stepping on them

a woman with a little dog
passes by, as if the building
had never started

sunlight on them
it’s damned hot here
go, go
