Urban Buildings

my neighborhood of city
buildings six floors high
on a street with six trees
embedded in dirt squares
surrounded by concrete
where we played potsy
and ring-o-levio under
the watchful eyes of
window watchers--
city buildings with supers
who swept hallways, fixed leaky
faucets and took care
of the incinerators--
my building where
on steamy summer nights
when the air inside didn't move
folding chairs appeared outside--
and the older people smoked
and kids played double dutch
and we waited for a breeze

Prompt:  Urban ( blank) fill the blank in with your own word
