Damaged Earth

The terrible damage
done by death
cannot be mended   - it can
merely solidify into a
harder earth that
allows itself to
bear one's weight and
walk, walk on  - the
pieces cannot,
will not join, but they
harden into expectation,
strengthen into life
in a different cast, different
shape to
bear the weight of living -
damaged earth
