urban dwellers in our midst
snatched the same conjured energy you drowned out

uncanny Eden, a silent one,
too strong, immense,
rips you every day

you grow up against the ancient civilizations
thinking, especially after dark,
you have the greatest chance
to glimpse hints of a lost paradise,
waiting for the jungle to be assembled and reassembled

get lost: until you get close to bits of mist and fog,
intoxicating, miragelike,
fake natural history
sleeps on you day or night
