The Staircase

Once with a friend
I came upon a strangest of staircases I’ve seen
Located in the heart
Of an already bewilderingly strange building

Its bottom: floor three
But when we gazed up we couldn’t see to
The top at nine
For the stairwell veered off vertical

Many weeks later I returned
To behold the spectacle this staircase was once again
Perhaps find a why
For the staircase’s scoliotic how

Then I thought
Such structures visited barely anymore in the modern world save during a fire
Must truly have known the fullest loneliness

A loyal twisted quadrilateral
Only to meet friends of old when sacrificing for them during
A time of danger
To deliver them safely

Staircase
Your devotion to us even after
We abandoned your kind
Makes me reconsider you
Your story I’ll remember for you
Of how you reflect
Tides of time changing you
