Once Upon an Era


once upon an era


an ancient flight of stairs stood hidden, housing thicket tinamous.


prehistoric birds of flight embedded homes within the stones 


unearthing a civilization somewhere in mexico


inhabiting calendar stones and relishing being alone


until one day came a humankind reveling in, adoring the eras and thrones


leaving the thicket tinamous to find new tombstones


thus the ancient stairs of rock delightfully homed the ancient birds that took to flight
