Urban Renewal

I replaced what I saw
with the picture from a postcard.

The landscape is a bit out of context,
but a reality-shop special effect

blended the incongruent borders together—
believable if you squinted your eyes.

Part of the sky rippled with the mirrored impression
of the scribbled message on the other side

about the wormwood absinthe you consumed
and escaping Canis Major’s snapping jaws.
