Pass through that low arch

beneath all these faces you bear

enter the featureless

space beyond structure.

This aritifice you erect – repetitive symmetry, illusion of strength,

(and yet, these layers have held

back the weight of that wall,

have they not?)

orders you

risk passage to what

lay beyond.

Opening exists

it merely appears to be

small from where you stand holding back.

Move closer

spaciousness awaits.
