The Sentinel

mapped out in digital
the glass, the trash
metal and concrete
sunlit and overgrown
suburban avenues
industrial sprawl

like a scene from a feature film
the cars, the trains
power-lines and factory smoke
stranger in an overcoat
watching out

from an overpass
making notes on the traffic flow
subtle codes in the afterglow
sentinel from a future-past
waits for the end credits roll
footnotes to apocalypse
