I Can Feel Myself Fading Away

Patrick Blagrave

I saw the skyline turn to glare:
gold & purple then entirely
away from me

The buildings have names
like Liberty, Liberty,
Comcast, & Comcast

They’re built for business & windows
that show us even clouds
belong to other people

Liberty is luxury
offices & a lookout point
tourists can pay for

From the street it’s perfectly clear
how invisible a person would be
from the observation deck
