The world is falling apart

violent tremors herald the arrival

of the subterranean leviathan

that writhes through desert sands

searching for a civilization to devour.

Mountains tremble at its touch

as if he is its first love

glancing across the schoolroom

and regarding him with

a demure eye and pearly smile.

If the depths below are

uncovered by the splitting of

tectonic plates and spires of stone

what is found that resides below

will never be seen again;

for the petrified remains

of world rulers past

will be understood in a way

entirely different than

the former generation found them to be.

The world is coalescing

rebuilt from the mud of the swamps

and returning man to a time

when the glory of his life

was an oracles stone temple

revealing a future

he already knew.
