365 Days of Poetry–Day 146–Chimney Stacks

Brick and mortar:
Dust beyond belief.
Brick and mortar:
A slow and painful ease.

Brick and mortar:
A shade for all of life.
Brick and mortar:
A veil to hide the night.

Brick and mortar:
A life that no one knows.
Brick and mortar:
A weight to stunt all growth.

Brick and mortar:
A slow and crushing death.
Brick and mortar:
A way to steal all breath.
