Ladder Clinging

Folder: 
A New View

.

Up, the only road 

wide with sturdy rungs

up. Perplexed,

the shelves are out

of reach.

.

And so the fierce

activity halts. Pause

becomes full brakes;

the echoing of tires

screeching.

.

Lean out unable

to see beyond a hard

grasp, stunned inside

an unexpected wait.

Fewer compatriot

climb pass.

.

Go higher another

year when Earth's

spin slows and gravity

tightens.

.

Dollars will fall likely 

green droplets out of

bright with challenge

dense storms. For 

now, hold. Reconfigure

high cloud destinies.

.

Do not reach up for

items on the surrounding

shelves. Breathe calm

to concentrate only

on rung maintenance.
