Toy cars beneath my feet

Commuting from A to B

Too aware of their finite time

To pause and gaze up.

 

The summit of the world

Giants contemplate the artificial world below

I morph into the rock I rest upon,

And observe them.

 

Moss grows around my toes,

Begins to sprout its green fingers up my legs.

Faraway voices chat about life down below

I am engulfed by morass.
