something about this wall

“If you can find a path with no obstacles,  
it probably doesn’t lead anywhere.”—Frank A. Clarke  
          
something about this wall  
                    o’ershadows me  
                    shrouds destiny  
                                        i cannot hear life call            
 
some slumber on the breast  
                    post-pubic smile  
                    too infantile  
                                        then slither back to rest  
 
some live a hundred years  
                    cleaving the earth  
                    līve afterbirth
                                        without the strain of tears  
 
sometimes i beg to die  
                    at break of day  
                    for no hooray
                                        ignites my morning sky  
 
summer may yet appear  
                    when spirits crushed  
                    are no more hushed  
                                        to some untimely bier
