Poetry - "Underground" #NaPoWriMo Day 13







Day 13:







Underground
by Jennifer Patino


The digging--
 a dirty symphony
Copper music
Scraping of tools
sends shivers
down the spine
The wells, the graves,
the pipeline
All left holes in our hearts

The pumps--
 a battle of bloodline
Tin-veined
Blown gold for fools
pays pennies
on the dime
The tears, the sweat,
the pain
All left us torn apart

Time is a thin line in the sand
