From The Fundament

by Brendan Strong

The rain came down
So the worms came up
Wriggling their way
From the fundament.
Through the clay, soil and shit
Through dazzling grass
To a moon bathed garden growing
From the fundament.
The rain came down
And then it came up
And surrounded them with what they’d escaped
From the fundament.
Diamonds on the way down
Death when it comes back up
From the fundament.
