Even this tiny snail's perfect fossil shell

Who put these reefs
shouldering out from road-side cliffs
dripping with corals
not seen alive for 300 million years
put them there to fool us
trick us into thinking
the world is an old old place?

The very same person
who built the whole shebang
from nothing, nothing at all
and loves us dearly
though, never speaking to us
or showing his face
is a funny way to show it
