Spring in the city

upside-down s/tree/t
an ominous sky gripped in the barest
arms of a tree
vert-tical cliffs
dust glass and steel
three subterranean streams webbing in
a piece of heaven?
that, too
is not what it seems
but a palimpsest of spring
in an intro-vert (in-truh-vurt)* self-
absorbed city
I cross. blindfolded

*introvert ― [noun, adjective in-truh-vurt]

in[*]vert  :  intro-vert  :  in-true-vert

"To speak is to not see. 
So all speech is to some extend blind."

― Jacques Derrida
