On three step backwards

Loci is subjective

while Loki is not

thump toil thump something

the rock might not back up, down! when you reach the apex;

stop, life doesn't rhyme with opportunity

and if you leave the rock behind

its no real matter

if you just stare at the damned thing

and muse on its kinetic force

wonder about gravity and teasing

affect when it teetered and nearly crushed you

again?  Was it exactly the same?

after the sweat and the tears and the oh so close to success

one realizes they've learned to redefine things

or not

either way it tumbles

the rock will end up on the bottom

The End
