Monument

BO4Tq81CUAAi-Dp

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Immortalized in Stone.”

Chiseled visage
and a bird’s eye view
on filthy streets

Around larger
than life granite feet
the masses plod

Few think to look
up from tedium
to meet the gaze

as if answers
were on the pavement
and not the stars

for we are all
statues to ourselves
stuck in a time

monuments
without any chance
at momentum
