The walls

See the labyrinth of the walls –
giant walls!
What a world behind, and what a world where it stalls!
How they heighten, lengthen, enlarge,
in a fraction smaller than time!

See the maze of the walls –
defiant walls!
What could look behind if their tallness never falls!
How they darken, sharpen, scourge,
in a lost universe without time!

See the defense of the walls –
silent walls!
What could touch that’s behind if they answer no calls!
How they fence, tense, diverge,
in an era where there’s no time!

See the infinitude of the walls –
endless walls!
What could look behind if there are halls of other walls!
How they home, tomb, forge,
in the matter of time!

See the immensity of the walls –
boundless walls!
What a world behind, and what a world it holds!
How they colden, condemn, purge,
in a person once upon a time!
