NPM 2021 - Found Poem 18

Today's poem comes from The Street Beneath My Feet, written by Charlotte Guillain and illustrated by Yuval Zommer.

Beneath My Feet

walking the city streets
stop and look down
what's deep in the ground
under your feet?

  pipes, wires, and cables
  earthworms loosening soil
  centipedes and microorganisms
  the sewer where wastewater goes
  history, objects left behind
  coins, pottery, swords
  loud rumbling noise - train!
  passengers, stations, tunnels
  limestone cave 
  stalactites and stalagmites
  underground river
  rock plates
  partly melted rock 
  liquid iron and nickel
  solid iron crystals
     at the center
     the hottest place on the planet
