Jaded Apprenticeship

Pick up

One piece, then two—

More if you so desire.

Make them one interlocking whole.



This test

Will not be solved

By gluing several bricks.

See what makes each one so special.



Tear down,

Build tomorrow,

We’ll use tiny pieces.

You've seemed to learn how to think small;

That’s good.


Floating specks:

These particles

May look like bits of fluff,

Yet you have built towers from them.

They’re great!


At last

You understand

The workings of the small.

Together they establish all.
