Watermarked Brick Wall
Five large ladder-rungs will get you up
from the destructive, eroding moisture level
to the dry bricks stacked loosely.
Four more ladder-rungs will get you up
to the top of the ladder, but
never to the top of the wall.
Is there another ladder available
to continue this upward climb?
What will be encountered at the zenith
of this water-logged
Will there be another fantastic landscape?
Of never before seen organisms,
of unique perceptions,
of embracing, un-walled in, existences?
