 There are people who know why the world revolves
   why monkeys and fossils evolve
 why the Catskills continue to erode and devolve
why cartilage and bones corrode and dissolve

        this could be why we dream.

 When earthquakes and volcanoes break out and layer up
   and cover our eyes with a cloth of dust
  like a frosty morning makes a field look like a tiled floor.

 When dreaming breaks our souls into pieces instead
   of puzzling our consciousness together
  like fighting fire is a job as well as revenge.

 When lakes begin to look more like graveyards
   and emotions begin to feel trapped inside skin
  it's what whale skeletons feel at the bottom of the ocean.

 Our expressions have two games
   and the truth is
  erosion isn’t just external.
Goodness, thanks for the DD.  Very much appreciated. :)

This is brilliant. I usually hate any sort of rhyme but once I got past that fact I really enjoyed the imagery and thoughts behind the poem itself. Wonderful work well-deserving of a DD. Congrats!

ha, rhyme poems are tough little things.  Thanks for trying out something your normally dislike - I can understand why.
