Deep Freeze


Forever held in stasis

the secrets of a man

we've never truly known

but whose history we chase

and whose mistakes we repeat

as the wheel of time rolls

down this worn rutted road.

The cold holds his memories

etched in bone long dead

brought back to life by

the savvy legs of progress

and the thirst for change

never slaked by whats always won

always brought about by the pain of loss.

The height of the mountaintop

in which he is held prisoner

is juxtaposed by the lowly execution

of his untimely death

alone, afraid, and lost.

Forever preserved in white

the color of the dead

but only if you are a member

of the so-called majority

that claims to own this world

stolen away from the past.
