live, laugh, love! ;)

this game we play

what a game of snakes and ladders:
where slides grow rungs that end halfway
and ladders curve sideways

one way in and one way out
still you trot round and round
led by string
(you once tied your heart with)

if you tilt your head you can just about see
the end
– and beyond
just waiting for thee

one yank brings you back
a tug and you’re done
tumbling tumbling
back to square one
