[You have your ancient see-through]

You have your ancient see-through
ways          Stars sustain their axis
Orion listing like gallows
for my creepy life      The pieces
of our ascending selves

            Olmecs
            (save a few stone faces)
            erased by a 50's oil company

Bleeping gastro kick-start
We pock mark plains
