Day 25: Mine Shaft

Mine Shaft

Hopeful
we run back
rewind to find
the spaces our bodies
once fit             easy
discoveries                   clandestine
treasures undug and waiting 
for bare hands-

but sunset pools in
carmine                             sepia  shadows       
on foothills of cast-off ore
too tall to climb
blocking                 our way
while crossing boards decry
in faded red

keep out
gold is gone
