The Sweet Sound of Gentrification

Really, who doesn’t like to wake up
To the sweet siren’s song
Of a rotary saw,

Buzzing,
Inside your skull,
At 0730?

Or to be reminded of the ant-like industriousness of our species;
Able to rouse a few good men from their beds,
Early enough to haul away 2 tonnes of wood scraps,
At 0630?

This is the sound of growth.
This is the sound of an up-and-coming neighborhood.
Or gentrification.
This is the sound of progress.

Yet,
At 0745,
I am still tired…
