Girder Stack

I think they’re girders, at least. Thick wooden beams, stacked.  Rust coats, slowly corrodes, as corrosion must be. The lot is near the western Grove Street Path station, the new one they built, there’s a lot with a fresh, brush and asphalt. A puddle that never evaporates. It’s as big as a pond now. Steel stubs protrude from the ground. Something used to be here and it will be a while before the plans are finalized and the bribe list organized for the next development to appear. Our memories of here remain as inexplicable as this present.
