Jersey City Saturday


The scene is quiet beneath the crane

with flag snapping from its extended arm

luxurious calm at the condo site

envisioned back when the boom was still on

cheap money and no-interest loans

Now the crews scramble to align

all the mirrors on the all-glass tower

gluing the facade into perfect short order

with luck the bust will bottom-out soon
