Devika Brendon: ‘The Tower Moment’

The Tower Moment

We can tell where the weak points are located
When the storms come, and the heavy weather makes landfall

The roof over our heads
Needs some attention
If it’s left, for a rainy day,
The manageable becomes dangerous
Everything erodes, and it would be arrogant to ignore this

Or to be overly preoccupied with lesser things

The roof could cave in, and fall apart:
As long as the walls are fortified
That’s a chance to read the Tarot

If you look past the signs of disaster
The people falling from the parapet
The lightning and the jagged edges

You see a structure broken open
So people inside can see the bigger picture
The vast universe, which makes sense of every extreme event
