bound by heavy energies
watch those who came after
sprint passed and ahead
knowing our jeremiads
the ranting aches of dwindling passage
as the incomprehensible young embrace
the heavy earth
but stand beside themselves
as if watching others...
they have a briefer time than they know
before they get here where we are
dazed by what will surpass them
the last of their kind...
