Blasted Rock

shattered by blasting
the rock's integrity
is dubious now
will never be the same

rough surfaces remind


rivers and glaciers
wear rocky roughness

so gravel has no
rough surfaces
(nice to build with)


this blasted rock
i stand on
every single day

i cannot sculpt
a blasted rock
it always seems
to fall apart

it makes a pile
of shattered rubble

if i look i know i'll see
my strong foundations
are not quite what 
they could be
