darkacre

dominion granted over darkacre
in perpetuity      measured
from the northeast corner
of the deconsecrated church past
memory      to the ancient
oak somehow immune
from hewing at the northwest
to the limit of the decommissioned
reactor to the southwest
to the ruins of the capitol
of empire lost
to the southeast      and not
from the river (for that changes with rain, with flood)
and not from the coast (for that changes with every tide)
and including airspace
straight up to the heavens
with stars for metes and bounds
and straight down to the heavens’
opposite      to the molten core
dominion granted in perpetuity for as long as
a fertile octogenarian can pass it on

Greg Hewett, Darkacre (2010)
