Perpetual Motion Machine

Eventually
by Michael Keshigian
 
Staring from the moon
in a dream,
I saw
people of Earth
meander aimlessly
from minute cavities,
following burrows
to dutiful destination
and back again,
some moved faster,
some carried more,
others were prostrate
to fantasy,
but above each hill
hovered ghosts of intentions
not resting, but preparing
singular openings
where well meaning
will be placed.
