At the Core

Deep beneath
Burning
Like
The surface
Of the
Sun
Hotter than
Anyone
Imagined
Predicted
Our
Planet’s
Core
No one knows
As we go
About our business
As we
Shop
Work
Eat
Play
Drive
Revitalize
Sleep
Wake
Die

Deep beneath
The calm
Is a core
Hotter
Than
Anyone knows
Hot
As the surface
Of the sun
Wrapped in
Fear
Wrapped in
Social
Nicety
Constantly
Suppressed by
Layers of
Learned
Behaviors
Manners
I go about my
Business
And no one
Knows
What churns
Deep beneath
