When I spotted this
T-shaped building
from a parking ramp
the other day,
I was sure it was metallic,
given the reflections
splattered on its side.
But, in fact, it was actually
a big concrete block
soaring into the sky
and licking up the sun.
Good trick!

Meanwhile, it was so cold that day
(well below zero Fahrenheit)
that the heating systems
in all the skyscrapers
huffed and puffed
billowing clouds of smoke
into the frozen air.
Eerily lovely.
