NEOLITHIC PERIOD

 

Ten thousand years back
we walked the slope and
left our footprints in the
falling ash. It got too dark
to see so we held hands
and stumbled on, stubbed
our bare toes. I’ve forgotten
where we were going.

I’m following our petrified
footprints but it’s gotten
dark again.

    I’m groping darkness
    for your hand
