Crushed rock smeared on cave walls,
charred rings dotting the ground,
blankets of death wrapped around nakedness.
The rich earth enslaved,
driven out to prolong life,
imposed order trampling beautiful chaos.
Stone and timber.
Brick and steel.
Concrete and glass.
Grey smothering green,
ashes and smoke,
always an electric hummmm.
Crushed into reserves,
Sick and dying,
Too much rain.
From behind iron bars we watched.
From the sides of asphalt ribbons we watched.
From under the crosshairs we watched.
From our nest of starving young we watched.
Wild, we watched.
A vibration in the earth.
