Looking Up

These streets
back and forth
there is nothing here that hasn’t been
what am I looking for?
Mountains beyond mountains
rooftops lining up above me
making me feel less significant
reminders that once
there were great people here
capable of great things
and every moment
every breath
is an affront to their memory
until otherwise proven.
