Each Rectangle Tells a Story

October 31, 2017 Kirk

the same

they say

but each rectangle tells a story.

Though their grandparents built the Great Wall

these here bricks lie prone


unable to repel even a midget Mongol horde.


They sit here

beneath my feet

waiting to be trod upon.


Their story is a peaceful one

asleep at the Snowbasin

Mountain Resort.




Commerce cannot sit still.

Sections of it have been rebuilt


It’s for tourists, of course.

For education.


There’s even an alpine slide

they say.


It’s up at the Great Wall of China

they mean

not at the Snowbasin

Mountain Resort.
