I see the New York Times hates 1 World Trade Center, recognizes how bad it is.  Good. It’s a piece of shit. I wrote a poem about it, how it broke my heart:

I’m angry at the 1

World Trade Center

it’s horrible

an original vision stray and lonely

reacting to fear

floors devoted to concrete, glass bent

of sturdy solitary

crude fortifications, a reminder for when

they were two, standing there

looking at the sunrise on the sea,

out to harbor saying hello duo

Liberty winking, a memory

now just one

child of greed and ambition, scrambled shape

to hide the wound, steeled in place

a lifeless echo, echo of everything and the void

wrapped around a towering rod

reaching for radio waves and emitting

to the lost

“come find me”
