They plan to take the scaffolding a day
from now. We’ve waited almost patiently.
Tomorrow we’ll enjoy reverse-delay –
they’ll come a day before they promised me.
They’ll disassemble tubes and cart away
the netting, planks, and ladders. Then we’ll see
the work my neighbors suffered to afford,
and access to repair will be restored.

(Ottava Rima)
