The Yesler – Leary Building

pri107

Fire Chief Collins hoped to stop
the fire at the Yesler-Leary
building on Front Street, tall atop
what is now Pioneer Square. Weary
with fear and exhaustion, townsmen
gathered close to watch a column
of hot air carry showers of sparks
and burning boards, like fireworks.
The holocaust was slow winning
new territory, but debris
rained down upon roofs as a tree
drops its cones—a new beginning
for more fires, and an explosion
in the sky like a second sun.

  1. Is Quest Field safe?

  2. Or rather, Century Link Field.

  3. Excellent pyrotechnics – in the form and the matter!

    Love this:

    but debris
    rained down upon roofs as a tree
    drops its cones—a new beginning
    for more fires…
