secrets can't be told in the dark

that makes worldly changes
is a secret
is buried
and dug up later in the ages
please keep this secret
do not tell in the dark
make sure you write backwards
so they can't glance at your art
question yourself
question us
question them
are what we make man-made?
or are we man-made men?
outgrowing our brains
and homes.
we are mold to this world,
constructed of bones.
