blasted awake in fire
cover tumult’s wake with wisdom.
Time’s winds will eventually erode faces into pillars—
six grandfathers watching.
Still yourself and listen;
their voices linger deep within granite
forced from Earth.

The Six Grandfathers is what the Lakota called Mount Rushmore. If you are interested, this article fueled my writing.
