Looking upwards at the skyscrapers

I only see boxes

stacked up on one another

like people’s drives and compulsions;

I see no end

to the rush

of going up and up

to reach what I see

but they are nothing

but stairs.

The climb saps me

of the will

to understand,

remember and recreate

the boxes

that keep me away

from the corner stone

of my home

of meanings.
