The Building of Future Ruins
#deepadaption 4/17/2019

The little brown and white
ceramic dog looks forlornly
Into emptiness notice black 
feet and crutch ends their 
jagged ankled edges remains 
of a once proud Saint Lazarus
(no the other one) the one
who dances with Oya and
takes the goods of those 
touched by plague the kind
of god who starts disease 
In anger ends with healing 
and love

Gave his statue (rather its
absence) a beer today
needing to celebrate 
rebirth and Spring
as much as

we need to celebrate
the Winter Solstice
And the promise
of the Returning Light

despite all the offerings
and abulitions protective
beats and cacophonic
prayers 
           he shattered
     due to events
           better left unsaid

reminding us 
All and Everything
only a future ruin

      Hekua Baba Hekua!
      from destruction

always return
Hekua Baba hekua!
hekua baba hekua
hekua Baba
hekua.
