Archeology

Archeology
dispensing vexation
excavation
millimeter by millimeter
digging down
through ash and clay and dust
for remnants of meaning
proof that we were here
and will be

mockery
6 feet down
scrapping the walls for signs of life
measuring
recording
or nesting
smudging the walls
of our future home

not so easy to decipher but intriguing to read. your "nesting" is intrinsic to who you are as a writer

The words you choose are always so fitting... tell me have you published your poems anywhere? I should think a greater band of people would deeply appreciate your writing!

I agree with Jo. Your writing is truly worthy of being shared with more people.

Thanks Wyethhouse and Jo for the very kind words. Yes, I have and do publish poetry. Some of it (that allowed to appear in more than one place) appears under the label "previously Published" on this blog.
