Poem: "Laugh all you want"

Laugh all you want—

he is taking the scaffolding down,
this young man in a yellow hard hat

xxxxxhe is taking the scaffolding down
xxxxxwith the other deliberate fellows

xxxxxxxxxxhe is unscrewing the steel brackets
xxxxxxxxxxhe is dismantling all the right angles

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxhe is switching eyes with me—
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxthe kind fellow—as I hammer past

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxhe is taking the scaffolding down,
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxunlocking the entrance to the bank.
