The 404

I wanted to see
some pictures of the city
before the freeway
made a thick scar
across its belly.
The searches
were fruitless;
they merely yielded
more pictures
of more freeways.
I don’t suspect
any conspiracies,
rather I believe
we have lost the idea
that it was ever
any different
than it is now.
I guess that’s worse.
