WHERE WERE YOU WHEN I LAID THE EARTH'S FOUNDATION?
at the heart of garbage
the -away of the throw-away
circling us in:
The desert of the real
a mouse click away
crack turn schism
salt to melt all winters away
where were you when I laid the Earth’s foundation?
and I build Arks for when Noah comes back
