the shedding

there are works that need doing

fires need to be lit

graves need digging

some things must die

so that we might live

nature’s law not mine

things outgrow usefulness sun sets

on them and cobwebs occur

things will be what they are

we will determine their worth

what we give space to

shine light on

give water

people or things

will the things in the end own us

what are we willing to bury

before we are buried beneath it

what will we leave behind in the fire

to stand on top of the mountain
