House on the Hill


All that’s left is a mound of detritus— 
Barely enough to remind us it stood 
Tall and strong as the family that held 
Sway over it, a domain now infested 
By burrowing creatures of the night— 
Let’s say blind earthworms with feelers 
Breathing through dank skins, sensing 
Their way through the dark by gauging 
Changes in the ever-changing light.

  1. The family may have stood tall and strong, but where are they now?

    Whereas the earthworms -- their intelligence preternatural, their persistence blest by time, their song unceasing.

  2. #04 especially but all of them remind us "we are a failed species".
