City Walls

City Walls

city walls built
to keep obnoxious
neighbours out

long enough to keep
marauding savages
at bay long enough for

raising sleepy defenders
(keeping ancient cities 
safe enough)


walls of stone and
walls of time

we fail to understand
time's relative elasticity

as space expands
beyond the possible

and time shows signs
of quantum elasticity

and time and matter
are  possible to create 
out of nothing at all

and are not conserved
as we'd expect
 
don't we want to know
how that all works


things beyond what 
we need to know

city walls failing to 
keep things predictable
