Desert Lined

As if lined Nazca will ever be deciphered
Geoglyphs were man-pressed passages –
a way to work out their god’s failed plan

among desert rocks & cracked ceramics
Cahuachi collapsed after deforestation –
as if a quiet prelude to our imminent ruin

By satellites [& drones] their paced paths
confuse all hypotheses & feed ignorance –
they growl with each dug hard exposure

of bone & cracked container holding only
air – will our remnants also crumble – will
we leave any account of why we declined?
