Nothing Keeps
It never remains the same
There is no reason
Everything changes
Seasons, people, objects
Things move, grow, morph
Things are removed, replaced, reconstructed

Skies are grey, blue, orange
Trees are different
Everything is always old
Or new
Bought, sold, borrowed, stolen

Liberty given, taken
Found with pleasure, neglect
You are my metropolis
My industrial animals
My man-made horizon
My falling freedom
Here, oh here
Nothing keeps
