Monument

Three minutes of our life is wasted
how quickly
the ground breaks beneath us
pillars once
monumental turn to dust
like pollen
resinating eye wear
huge pieces
of science plummeting
down upon our heads
cover our ears, we should not hear
this sound: 8.0
we are now shoreline property
we are Noah’s Ark
on the tip of iceberg: Titanic
Exxon’s animals.
