The Rock

The rock reaches to the sky
the rock holds you away
I can’t look but have to
I look away heeding the warning
don’t look here

The cliff of rock
I dreamt of the hand in the thunderous sky
grabbing the inhabitants
shaking them and tearing them apart
they couldn’t resist

I could look but I was warned not to
by the rock, the cliff
as it reached like Jacob’s ladder
it opened the sky
I was compelled

My eyes fell away,
it was radiating a sense of place
this place
listen, just listen
don’t look here
