Inheritors

And they will hold our ruins as sacred spaces,
empty towns like empty vases
to fill with flowers and snaking vines
(new uses for what’s left behind)
They will not know our names, our creeds,
our times of joy, our times of need,
what circumstance led to our destruction,
nor will they ponder their own construction,
