Concept 2012

They were assessing progress on the Olympic site,
the stadium shell bare as a fossil being reconstructed
from the future, the stingray roof of the Aquatics
Centre, vastly over budget, hovering like an exhibit.
 
People in hard hats talk objectively of 2012, the vision
is present, is fleshed in rapid talk and smiles, we are
more there than here, the concept accomplished
things on the ground presently crawl to fulfill.
 
Like every fabulous construction that has ever risen:
the Bird’s Nest of Beijing - the opening ceremony! -
concept has first to fire the imagination, then justify
itself in the finished product of construction.
 
So things of matter are trumped up to manifest concept:
you see it in face paint and costume; everything
Is designed for effect, as if to highjack perception,
to stake a claim in earthly terms what is pure imagination.
