Old

Fossil

 

The world is old, is old, is old,

Of broken stones

And splintered bones

And shattered shells

And dust.

 

The rivers clog with silted hopes

And fractured dreams

And stunted thoughts

And dated gods

And rust.

 

The fragments churn and drift to sea,

The trilobites

And dinosaurs

And Belshazzar

And you

And me.
