    Inside project structures made of steel and brick
    Concrete stairs are turned into magic carpets
    Heading upward to the place young lovers go

    Holding hands, skipping every other step
    A boy and a girl make the journey
    A rite of inner-city passage
    A teenage community bedroom if you will
    Free from sudden sibling or parental intrusion

    Never out of season
    Rooftop air breathed between teen-hot kisses
    Hormonal urgency rules their young bodies
    The excitement of intrigue rules their open minds
    Black tar and gravel hold the secrets
    Everyone will soon know

    It is here; alone with the one you “go with”
    Lies of love are told
    Skirts are raised
    Pants are dropped
    Only the ears of the sky will hear
    Only the eyes of a summer sun will watch
