Over

Unseen shadows mount cliffs over absent ocean reaches

Gazing over wastelands of dams’ created earth

Metropolis’ foreshadowing ubiquity frightens winds pressing against landslides

Futures neither peaceful nor content compete for flickering space on billboards hidden against walls of moistened dust

Multiplication compels efficiencies unhelpful beneath voices of restraint long forgotten

Children desired overshadow failed futures’ words of truth

(Avi Sato, 2019)
