Spiral stairs

Sometimes every word is perfect
And their cadence makes a graceful
Illustration of an insight so ingenious
As to be an inspiration
To the most closed-minded readers,
Til the terminating punctuation
When I finally see I’ve said the same before.

Sometimes every start is artless,
And every step is scapegrace,
And when I finally finish what I started
I make haste to start again
Because the ending that I’m left with
Simply restates with a different
Taste the statements made in the beginning.

Sometimes the only steps
I climb are those I walk before I topple,
Or more often I accomplish what I suspect
To be success and at a second glance look down
To find I’ve climbed up here for nothing.
