Value, and Atomic density

one day this’ll all be
dust
again
when we’ve finished w/it
when the soil’s no longer fit
for planting
the particles will settle
when the decay is too much
to keep up /w

the billions of miles of
paved country
will be taken back
when the last of our dry hair
has haloed, and fallen
and we’ve forgotten Who
and what we
are

when that no longer matters
our wombs will shrivel with overuse
when we’ve finally fused
our genes with every thing
this Planet offered
even our selves
grown
thin
a hundred more generations
the Sun will have kept it’s promise
to set everyday
when we are
underground

etching new legends
into our tombs
