Indifference (Day 135)

Indifference turns Its back 
toward the fern embellished wall.
How poverty offends them.
False, soft voices rise and fall, 
like joy. A liquid starless 
sky obscures—rivers flood 
but truth is scarce.
Fragrant lies glissade, stirring 
ancient broken landscapes.
Forests will replace these things,
vast oceans will diminish fools.
