detail – in the maelstrom

driftwood 5 (2)

do you doubt
the world
is changing
little one

do you not see
caught up
in the whirls

the whorls

of turmoil

like me
like me
you too will wither

like me
even like me
the future will happen
while you idle


there it is

there it

it is gone

like me

and too-deep
the etching

driftwood 5
