The sky became heavy.
The earth was still.
Until it cracked open and dived upward into the sky.
Riled by the wind, the earth and sky shuffled together.
Rains ceased. Water rose. Dry, torrential.
Nature shifted shape, architecture was no longer human.
Joined in memory, never forgetting. New forms arose.
Sarcastic, cynical, joyful, resistant. Still, we built.
