Progressions before

It seemed black and soaking it in
to itself shiny and tar-like, yet not tar
Exposed within the perimeter of safety
Provided by that simple word, floors
that is one for each room
with six brick walls to cover them by

Curling ivy erupts over each wall in rotation
until all walls become owned by the plant
Aware of its claim to the surface, it now owned the whole room
the plant started to eat the wall slowly but surely the ancient
barrier became swallowed by a small clutch of trees
eventually nobody even knew about its past as a barrier
but strange stories about that wood made it a thrilling
place to observe the sunrise, all huddled up close,
in a graveyard the stars seemed somehow closer.
