THE FIRE PUMP ROOM

The fire pump room.
In between the early morning hours of 3 am and 7 am,
are the ‘fire pump room’ hours in the building next door.
On the first floor, in the alley corner, echoing
chaotically like a sonic “X” down the block,
like a treasure “X marks the spot",
or a loud homophonic orchestra of steam and metal
