Of tangled bricks and mortar.
Many rooms hide inside.
Some are fit for kings,
Others darkened oubliettes.
Connected by spiralled

Straight to the exit.
My heart is made
Of bricks and mortar.
For today. Tomorrow
It may be made of
Sticks and feathers.
Hollow inside and
Ready to tumble down
At the faintest blow.
