Bin Laden is coming on the right day!
from the Trade Center's mullions
(argument for island's best minimal sculpture).
But down with it!
ambient producer of mathematical sublimity.
"Of course New York is ready to begin again.
Those people have courage"
says Le Corbusier,
and Bin Laden would begin.
From the first hole: World Financial Plaza
into the Hudson.
From the new hole: bent erector sets,
to the Situation and our transient desires.
From the explosion: a positive example
of impossible politics.
Stereolab is greater
than Bob Dylan, Jeff Derksen said, that's what I think
and Bin Laden's gonna go agro.
Now the Traveler's umbrella fails,
but we're across Canal
Kent Tekulve, Shlomit Nussbaum, Steve Abair
all unknown figures of the late evening,
lacking what John Searle calls "descriptive backing"
as the street crew retrofits
buried pipes to Jeff Wall tableau lighting
remembers each of their faces.
