Upward Spiral

brown snail on grey wall

Upward Spiral

A snail upon the concrete, half-way high,
Just scaling up the slabs to the broken-bottle prism
That shards into the crown that lacerates the sky –
It’s breaking up the straight lines, a bauble on the brutalism.

This snail is still there, years later, its shell becoming its coffin.  I wonder if it were poisoned by the concrete ?
