The Sounds of a Breakdown

The sounds of

A Breakdown is

Messy and loud –

An en media res

Heathen sound –

A crashing down ---

Like pagan workers

Who carelessly

Throw away cast

Away bricks – from

Long ignored

Pyramids – just

To load machine

Made construction

Beams –
Walk beneath

The metal

Street slowly,

And surely you

Will hear the Snap –

The breaking,

Falling Wreck ---

Such a sound:

Total – Forlorn –.
