Crucifixion

They don’t come

to this piece

of earth any

more, the sun

worshippers spread

eagle on their

robes. They

don’t offer up

their bodies

any more.

What they do

is pierce the

earth, dig down

for underground

parking and

erect an eight or

ten story townhouse

apartment building

on the site.

That way money

can be made,

progress can be

served and all

but naked co-eds

can find another

place to get

their tan. It’s

sad. There isn’t

going to be anyone

who can afford to

live at this

address for less

than several

thousand dollars

a month. The

view before

looked better

and came free.
