Causality and Context

© Matthew Word Bain

squinting in the glare of the late afternoon
still keeping its secrets, for now
this building is changing
something new is on its way
so much is brewing in this town
new people, new ideas, new projects
buildings that have spent years boarded up
are churning with change on the inside
and slowly beginning to show signs
that their identities are changing
they are becoming different
they have new purpose
new meaning and the change
on the outside is driven by the change
on the inside, immanence emerging
to reveal itself to the new world
that has also been becoming
to create the context
for these old structures
breathing the air of new life
