.

Bricks would have been better, instead

of more stones and pebbles, but it served

to form a shaky foundation. Wobbly

steps pounded the granules

into a slanted walk that aimed

mostly up.

.

Stage, atop the crumbling past,

solidified sufficiently to hold up limbs,

a disfigured mind, and all the stuffing

born of various schools full of fluff

instead of bricks.

.

Steel, replaced the rocks, blow torched

or chipped into a Brancusiesque figure,

challenging museum white space, daring

bricks to show up and be as beautiful.
