Burial Ground
larrylark

Assumed futures loom above scaffolding
 1
funnelled from cold earth.
 2
Bolted poles perch over vanishing points.
 3
Horizon, forensically measured, smeared with steel,
 4
rises behind bulldozed ground
 5
 
 
Workman, helmeted, bullish,
 6
clutches skull, cursing inconvenience.
 7
Neanderthal, or decades ago murder?
 8
Uncertain? No delays, throws it away
 9
History and justice betrayed?
 10
Missing link stowed below towering blocks
 11
that will pass as new age living.
 12
Like all before, equally unforgiving.
