in the shadow of the colossus

Feb 7, 2009, 7:54 PM |

Standing directly between the feet of my obstacle                      staring

upward at a mangled patch of hair                                       reeking

of the dried soak of itself and others                               attempting

the toppling of a skyscraper                                      wasting

patches of earth                                   composite               nutritious

create sustenances for                                     our species delicious

as they go crunch                          into the maws of a bigger, badder, building

lunch for the                         creeping crawling filling

suits.  ties.                    drawing flies

into              mouths.
