from the ground up

I, Architect

built up, torn down

building myself again and again

brick and mortar

brittle and mortal

an edifice of artifice

a monument of machination

body, mind, soul

torn down, built up

upon a sound foundation

in the spirit of

an Eiffle, an Olmsted, a Lloyd-Wright

imperative towering over impermanence

the architecture of a life beyond blueprints

anchored to this Earth while reaching for the stars
