On my way to meet friends for lunch, 
I walked past two or three separate construction sites.
Nearly all activity had come to a stop as the crews
took breaks for their own noon meals.
Even this load of metal forms could wait in mid-air
until the crane operator had his lunch.

I caught this group of supervisors in the midst of
an "important meeting", one that was,
of course, vital to the successful completion
of the building.
Every time I pass this site, I am fascinated by
the number of patterns I see. I want to
crawl among the bars, braces, and supports
that form the core of what will
become an apartment building and grocery.
