Progress: Glacial / by Rami

What does it mean to make progress
at a glacial pace?    Eons, epic

epochs

the force, almighty
      earth-moving force of

countless thaws and freeze

                       raging

rivers compressed under time
      under till
               under catastrophic weight
invisibly scour their way

It might take 10,000 years to reach the sea
dragging history
                            that claustrophobic nonspace
solid ground cut through

mountains made     glaciers calved
there is no monolithic
status      
impenetrable, fixed

from the perspective of ice
ages; from the perspective of stone.
