Civilized?

hardhats pulled the street apart
today
I walked out in the Sun

they were laying new concrete
despite curious pedestrians
the boys played in the dirt
with their Tonka trucks
somehow
the world’s a better place

this time next year
I’m sure
there’ll be new potholes,
puke stains,
tire skids, broken glass,
and small animal carcasses
to highlight
the clean
organized
monotony
