Cement Mixers

Until last week, I never understood

The risks that workers take,

Until last week I worked as one.

 

Scaling improbable towers

Lop-sided, towering tangles of

Imported mechanical components.

 

On the brink, scaling rusted pyramids

Waiting for a butterfly to flap its wings

Like a nihilistic executioner.
