Build me a place worthy of my dreams

My requirements are modest.
No sweeping buttress
Or soaring towers
Or bridges that extend to infinity
You create spaces, you say
So put some walls around ours
Blast the terracotta with heat
Lay the foundation with me
Let’s use marble
Let’s keep the lines simple
No escape route needed
Because this is a refuge from the world
Not a place to run away from
Can you not see
what a beautiful place this would be?
But I don’t think you understand
Because the plans you have drawn
are unfinished.
Uninspired.
They lack vision.
See the friezes
that burden the structure
as if they were my thoughts
Or that trestle
that hardly supports
A plastic model of uncertainties
In place of brick and mortar
But my amorous architect…
at least it’s a start.

Build me a place worthy of my dreams

Artist's Description

I wanted to do justice to the theme I had here; it probably needs a little more work :)
