Peel away the plaster,
See what’s there inside.
The inside was once the outside
Before the mortar dried.
We live in a world of layers,
One age on top of the next.
Just like books in a stack,
Page upon page of text.
I wonder what I’ll find if
I look in the dirt and the damp.
Deep in the earth there’ll be objects
That I’ll find with a hurricane lamp.
Tear back a piece of wallpaper
To see what was there before.
Think about how, in the future,
You’re going to put up more.
