If you are an animal, if you are a bible,
if you work chess, if you play scrabble in the dark
with glowing letters, if you are opposed
to opposition, if you see the green ladder,
if you stand against your very flesh to support it,

come up to the plateau of fevered rocks
and pillar them up to my chest and past it,
to the rims of your eyes and transcend their sight,
to the edge of the world which is not an edge
but a round descent.
