the view

tectonic shifts in power
that terraform our hearts and minds
gravel spills forth
the ground vomitting out the old
we pack in the new
like sardines we wait to burst forth again,

is this view new to you?
or a refresher course
of 80 dishes
each less salty than the last.

underneath caterpillar treads
jackhammer poundings
the ground rumbles,

ignorant to the shakings
of an old woman.
