we are the last of our kind

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...
