S. M. Kozubek: The Block Tower

(Read bottom to top)

begin again.
the blocks
now pick up
falling down.
is falling down
London bridge
the tower tilts:
how the heart beats
oh my!
careful last brick now
almost eye level
rising again
gently thus so
adjust two blocks there
catch a breath
inching upwards
no mortar here
counter gravity's pull
easy easy now for base
word upon word
Block upon block
