Blueprint Of You


I had designs on you.  skylines 
and cityscapes, imposing eyes
to measure each breath.  draw 
the line at street corners, I said.

crosswalks cannot be foretold: 
don't jaywalk.  paths have been
carved from every inch of emotion.
you are a blueprint unfathomed. 

comes time for the dedication. 
ribbon-cutting;  cornerstones; 
handprints in cement;  signs. 
you are a time capsule, empty.
