Photo Essay

.i love rust.

.i love rust.

I, of the immaculate 'burbs

drawn to ionized decay-

how ironic that is- I from a pristine world

attracted to rust on this adventurous day!

Majestic burnt relics, things of the past,

magnificent broken monuments of yore

useless scraps thrown from the table

of civilization's unending gluttonous feasts,

ruins and vestiges of eras no more

yet doomed to be created by generations to be

who'll repeat history with their own space-derelict beasts!

Poem written by Numi Earl Grey. Many thank's to Susan B. Griffith for this nomination, most grateful!!!!
