Roman Railway

Pieces come to rest
‘neath the dust settling
The evidence steadying
to still ground
Emerging divergence
between spirit
And underbelly ground
on gravel ‘low
It is the baggage
the burdens weighing
Heavily – the demons
sabotaging the trajectory
Of the shell broken
now left low
Despite the intentions
of these wings
It will not be my voice
when deliverance
Sings
