The wall is not contiguous
The wall listens and shoulders your burdens
with structures conducive to relaxation -
You may lay against the wall for sleeping
You may sit into the wall eating lunch,
Traverse its length collecting coins or at night
Watch it glow from its joints
The wall is loving and is not impervious
The wall represents local cultures and is open
The wall welcomes you like a wave and like a wave
It welcomes you, offering food and directions
The wall is transparent because there are no true boundaries
Between where you come from and where you are headed
At the wall, you do not need to leave the old you behind,
But if you want to, there are receptacles to deposit
Stories you wish to forget.
The wall is a habitat for creatures and is not contracted to any single
Private company. The wall is a public work, and anyone who wants to contribute may.
The wall offers methods for communications - pockets, chalkboards, pens, paint,
And houses a mailbox, free of charge, for standard weight letters.
The wall is technologically ripe, but there are spots without light,
For solitary contemplation
And birds overhead that hum and drip nectar, birds that may not be
Born in the u.s.a.
