POEM: Ruins

blocks of rubble

corners & edges eroded round

bas reliefs dulled

&

adorned by jagged cracks


once the Earth’s most massive city

in its day London was a hamlet


thriving,

dying,

&

swallowed


infinitely patient arboreal adversaries

claimed the light

drilling down into cracks

making chasms

to set roots


strangler figs, literally,

strangled

figureheads



[National Poetry Month: Poem #8]

These display cases of skeletal remains are at the Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum in Phnom Penh. Just one of the many horrific legacies of the Khmer Rouge.
