Built of Brick

built of brick
and broken stone;

your rubble life
you can't condone.


earthquakes shake
stone, so it falls.

we cannot plan
our world at all.


but we do plan
so cheerfully,

with so much
confidence,

you wouldn't think 
we heard of hubris.


i photographed
a lobby in a very
old building,

history may be
very good to us.

she said that she 
didn't know she 
worked in such 
a beautiful place.


built of brick and 
broken stone; 
nothing lasts forever.

remember rubble;
there is a message
hidden somewhere,

and how can we 
learn how to read it?
