The dissolution of Precambrian land masses,
so slow and so long ago by now.
India (unnamed) crashing
into Asia (everything then unnamed).
The emergence of the Himalayas,
such extraordinary mountains.
The change of climates, slow, ironic;
deserts that had been seas, for instance.
The extinction of the dinosaurs (colossal stones
tumbled from the skies).
Or things such as: the arrival of these or those.
The voyages so many made.
Things like that.
But I was born in the year nineteen hundred and fifty-eight
of the Christian era. I will not live for centuries
and I can barely watch the loss of a majestic jungle.
I’ve been unaware of other great events.
