Old brick troubled by safety orange, construction sites.
Uphill climbs and downward gazes
Downtown power walks, in and out of skid rows.
A work-in-progress city.
Zigzag through nifty gift shops and fresh fish;
A farmers market maze.
Stopping at pure pier stillness
The Great Wheel’s reflection
Taps the scales of Puget Sound.
The child within awakens
Under a warm pinkish-gray sky
Pierced by the Needle.
