After Denver

A canyon of skyscrapers
rearranges the inner ear,
unleashes dim stars.
Looking up I fall inside.

Vertical angles bright
with your vertigo name shift
around my wide steps, daze
this prairie body’s large eye.

Evolution in low buildings
has made me smug.
I never have to make a date
with giant skies.
