Trying so hard to reach the rim and build something lovely to hold fast the perfect view.
My materials are all lopsided, disparate, and antagonistic.
They fight me on the way upward and some even twist away and hurry back down into the darkness.
The symmetry is compromised on my very first attempt at balance.
A smooth edge is compromised by a broken scar in one corner.
The teeth on the "old saw" are unmaintained; the final cut has splintered edges.
The paint has grown thick and chalky and no longer glows with luminescence.
I can photo shop but the dissonance still remains and has been made permanent.
I will take a walk now....
