All that is solid is made of air

Everything solid is made of air
the breath of the foresaken
the lungs of the unnamed
of granite existence
that did not forbid
an eye for detail
and matching instruments;
everything solid is made of order
the do-this,
the for-this-much pain
and merit tangible
and after-life bliss,
the rajakaariya
dismissed by fervor
the higher kaariya
of faith;
everything solid
came with power
stayed and outlived
the powerful
and keeps speaking
of air and mind
the metaphysics

history will not record.
