Everything Changes



Change Changes, and that will never change

There used to be an Old Man in New Hampshire,
Now it’s just the tree-covered side of a mountain.
There used to be a Wall in Arches,
Now it is two points without a middle.
There used to be a shallow cove, warm as bathwater
Where I once swam in Door County,
now with lake levels down it’s a marshy backwater.
Natural Bridge in Virginia used to be
a cavern before it collapsed.
Crater Lake used to be
a volcano caldera
which used to be the peak of a mountain until
Cataclysmic catastrophe.
Just like how marriage can become divorce
Just like how friends move apart
Just like how a river cuts into rock
We are, until
everything changes.
