The moss ark.

Ed Ruscha - 'Me' (American 1999)

The moss ark was built less out of assistance or purpose
Than it was of substance.

Once, as its own soul dictated, it was carried--
Having been sought and excavated,
Then allotted space in worshipping eyes
Then buried.

See, in fact, how gracefully the observer glances to
Read the carved line on the stone,
Then hurries to look back?
