They made the mistake of leaving a message on the wall

something for eyes of the future to gawk at

as if those same eyes who saw sandstorms fall to the floor

aren’t already watching steel and concrete

buckle beneath the weight of manufactured meaning

Far off beneath a sky of new stars

a soul gazes into heaven

at the realm of dead gods who long to stake their claim

and who ask the final question of a world long dead

Why embrace darkness in a universe of light?

The world won’t wait.
