From the Roof to the Core

Gold awnings make inflation spillways, 
adding water to the sewage supply
and ensuring that pipe unemployment
remains negligible. 

Strong foundations demand
wealthy marshes to topple
themselves when the time comes
to sink and shift and fall.

You and me, we had it figured out,
idioms and cadmium, 
calcium and perfidious nights.

Our hydrogenated coconuts 
spelled corn when heated,
and each ethanol unit
cost more ears than noses.

Watch and respond, that's the
task of brain-wearing,
a sort of augmented reality
that goes well beyond 
the bucket and brings back
every stone from the bottom of the tunnel 
to the center of the earth.
