INFLUENCE

Sixty, or perhaps 
sixty five million 
years in the making—and sharp

and yet—dull
and unimpressive;

our minds—
though piercing
and potentially fatal

are surely nothing like carbon diamonds.
But more like
rusty nails

to lie
ugly and unmoved 
by surface pressures—and not

to think
of getting older;

but only—to dream 
of growing
more

and more 
ancient

and
dreadful-

ly—unavoidable.
