sunset on hindley st

Maybe a week ago, leaving the mall and about to walk along Hindley St towards something and being stopped by the lights, Adelaide, city of red lights, and the guttering sun burning the face of the Colonial Mutual Life building, it floated in the blue void, I wanted to climb it and wished it was a thousand stories high, to be warmed beside its unreachable gargoyles while you were lost far below in the the chill gloom of the street.
