facebook paleontology

Wistful ignorance gone

as a curious poke spears a still pond

roiling sediments of neglected memories

exposing a strata of petrified intentions

rich veins and raw nerves

here and here – ashes of periodic cataclysms

lovingly blanketing layers below

charcoal lines on a page

yet porous – riddled with a labyrinth of tunnels

small creatures (warm bellies with feathers or fur)

live in there – scratching enduring

disturbing the lay of the land

unearthing odd reminders

trilobites surfacing in the sand
