Digging in Darkness

By Scott Wozniak

 

Why do we

uncover

the past?

 

Mining

forgotten

moments,

hoping sense

can come

from vague

lapses

in memory.

 

I supplement

recognition

of something

greater

on the face

of what’s become

by dissecting

what was never

known.

 

Artifacts begging

to be excavated

remain in shadows

no matter how deep

the shovel goes.
