Growth on the Lake

Growth on the Lake


The neighbourhood
Has grown,
In a burst.
The fruits of
Big commerce,
Suddenly blossoming,
As they often do
These days,
When construction
No longer crawls
But sprawls
In high and
instant towers.
The Streets
are buzzing;
Night side walks
are full of
Condo dwelling youth
All hand in hand;
an instant population
On the Lake,
Where formerly
were only
Discrete motels
Rented by the hour
And rendezvous
In half filled lounges
Where the lizards sang.
