Returning to Carlsbad Caverns

We must probe deep below to elude
cities that crack their knuckles against the sky
and humanity staking its territory
with appointments, verdicts and broken glass.

We delve, as if craving some source
that sculpts these interjections in stone
which we parallel with celluloid scenes:
what endures versus what must pass.
