They All Go Tumbling by Shannon Austin

Imagine playing Jenga, but with dominoes
and playing cards­–the ivory tiles

invite the foundation to slide while
the latter builds a floating house

with every intention of it
crumbling.

That is what it’s like when two
pairs of eyes cross paths inside

a crowded room, never knowing
that the others’ goal was the

pair of eyes behind
them.
