TOPPLING TOWERS

Screen Shot 2016-07-31 at 20.21.00

And so
he built
himself
a tower,
a tall
terrific
tower
on the
tip of a
tumulus
far from
touch and
tenderness,
a non tactile
tower that
nobody
could
topple
as he’d
already
been tripped up
time and time before.
And one day he climbed
to the top of his tower on the tip
of that tumulus far from touch and tenderness
and, true as time can tell, he toppled on the tip of it,

tail over tit, and tripped right over it
   with not a single soul to intervene and so thwart his tumble.
