Brown Stone: A Poem

Brown Stone

 ancient soil slowly swallows the brown stone

That was planted to grow before sinking

 broken bricks sulked at the end of a legacy

yet the suffocating roots

wrestled freely for the place of stone

Demolishment choking the foundation as

Solid sticks poked and prodded and churned the obstinate matter

The earth cried out – TRESPASS

The competition cried out—PASS YOU NOT

The brown stone sinks deep

The roots creep

Water seeps

Into the undecided entry ways

Pure suffering

Wonder Woman

blue uniforms are villainous capes to super heros

I hope invincibility

when black bones rot into mushrooms

When the Silver bullets

Come looking for silver backs

Gorillas that left the forest for fields

that caught on fire by a

Smoking gun,  lit with a smiling finger tip

silver bullet, punched a hole in me like fragile paper

flipped my wig like the deciding coin

I hoped invisibility
