born in hellfire

bedrock of continents

quarried and dressed

by muscular artisans

wanting to lend

timeless sense

to ephemeral life

something durable

left as a permanent

trace of brief transit

by beings organic

and conscious some

everlast evident

monument to an

invincible spirit

no matter how

wishful its quality
