So Long Jets


A sidewalk block not 
Far from here’s got 
Pigeon footprints 
Pressed in it 

Pigeons sixty years ago
Who stepped right through 
When it was wet — 

The simple pigeon footprint 
Which looks just like a jet 
Roaring through the grey skies 
Of these sidewalks,

Where will these be 
When the seas rise? 

And no one will see these jets   
Any longer
