A history of mammoths
salted away in warehouses
scrawled in chalk.
sleep is a secret you once overheard
A history of rivers
snaking down steep slopes
walled in glass.
clay is a wisdom that leaves no fingerprints
A history of ballads
that dolphins sang about horizons
broken by microphones.
shale is a darkness you struggle to weigh
A history of drought,
gulls circling above gaunt hills,
waiting for rain to wash the words away.
words are rapids that drown us all
