Eddie Krzeminski: Outside the Trump Taj Mahal in Atlantic City
OUTSIDE THE TRUMP TAJ MAHAL IN ATLANTIC CITY
It's been closed for over a year now
but the cupolas still loom
over the city like dirty shadows.
I'm thinking of how to measure
the thousands of hands out of work,
the darkened dining room, dust
settling into the crystal wine glasses,
the hotel tower blocking out
what's left of the sun.
Eddie Krzeminski was born and raised in Naples, Florida. He is currently an MFA candidate at Florida International University. In his spare time he reads, writes, and plays bass in two bands. His work has previously appeared in The Mangrove Review and Plath Poetry Project.
