Eyes paved
Over

Heart paved
Over

Mouth paved
Over

But they put in
A nice lawn with a nice
Fence with a nice sprinkler
System and nice little boys
And girls in nice comfortable
Uniforms kicking a nice
Comfortable ball into a nice
Comfortable net

Under the pavement
Is soft with the song
Of bone and whisper

Under the pavement,
Songs sung under
The breath

Words that fell on
Deaf ears that dropped
On the ground and settled
On the soil

The ground speaks:

Don’t walk so
Hard on me

I can feel
Everything

Remember, I
Remember everything

And remember,
You are standing on my
Back, my face, my skin,
My body, my bones

Who gave you
Permission to do
That?

Walk gently

You wouldn’t
Want to piss
Me off, now would
You?

Oh, and one
Other thing

Stop building so
Many Goddamned
Condos!

That’s it,
I’m done with you
