"Ladder" & "Lacking"
every line bears this weight
clumsy truth, crucifix-like
and in bearing alone, they are born
on the wings of those demons we've seemingly seen
one ladder inverted
where once Jacob had torn

in anger, in the dry place where we left the vision
with numbers and rulers we form
circles in playgrounds like schoolgirls
with jump ropes and all with short sing song rhymes
short, and now shorter, now shorter
with long life hum whispers and all with eyes
