The Great Wall

Laid end to end

Sartre’s bones

constitute the mortar

 

of our allegorical wall

martyred concrete

filling the gap

 

between mortality and

obscurity by repetitious fame

stacking high the shadows

 

empty sockets cast

on nameless trenches, moats

long ago stormed

 

but never held;

by dusk they’ve lost the words

to ending plastic patriarchy

 

leaving them with the bleakness

bonemeal’s philosophy extends

across the consciousness of the world.
