Sonnet XCIV

Around me windows cage me in, so still.
Aligning roads the buildings sit, so straight.
All gates and fences steal their earthly fill.
A thousand cars appear as lifeless freight.

how free the lone tree stands, unhindered there!
oblivious to breathless happenings
the ever-rising architectural stair
like patterns, endless in the human ring

How human uniforms impose their whims
upon a happy earth so dismally!
Crude structure, form, and function seem so grim
in contrast to the natural entropy

How typical. The concrete human mind
seeks simple order over complex finds.

A word is dead
When it is said,
Some say.

I say it just
Begins to live
That day.

- Emily Dickinson
