ivy

sprawling limbs
bright greens
brittle browns
conspire against
the alabaster bricks
an effusion in
natural destruction
clawing at mortar
a degradation
in stability
with thorns dripping
poisonous ostracism
in an overgrown
manic mayhem of
insidious growth
a reclamation of
stone bones
an internment of
fickle whims in
terminal deposition
in feral conjunction
with stark design
ivy snakes along
the decrepit walls
a reminder of the
futility of hope
