Broken earth becomes
The echo upon echo of what once was
As they knocked each one out
For fear that they would be crushed
Under their tremendous breadth

Unfortunate then, to stand among brothers
Among titans, fearing nothing
Save for a lifetime of isolation
Where soil screamed their names
and found them victims of human fear

challenges that no human could know
Because humanity is so, human.
stretching limbs
to a god that brings no refuge
still seeking it in objects and words

killed with technology
they fought virgin flesh against tempered iron
and lost, each severed limb shook the earth
as others sat without so much as an afterthought

but they left the mysorenesis
the gaunt young mother 
as though she would not carry within inverted breath
the whispers of what was to come.
