underneath untamed
untamable earth
transplanted roots
tangled and took
hold unrecognized,
red legged and
darkly twisted
a same boat muchness
it was either this or hell
luckily, this was far worse
as this was unexpected
for this turbulent, eroded
uncontrolled dragons mouth
was perfect for apes and
bearded savages
to run amok this place
was for cave dwellers
this was no place for settlers

  2. Well, I don't know that I can thrill you. I'm not sure exactly what's going on here but I like the language. I find "a same boat muchness" captivating, even if I don't know what it means.

Say something!
