Folly

A jagged edge of sunset gold
cuts the hillside.

Was it folly to build
this land a tower,
that it might fold
its heavenly green
over and over,

peer through
a monocle of window
to meet
the curious
and fanciful?

Remember the night
we tested its magic,
walked in a snowflake
chain of bodies,
stopped before
getting too close?

Remember the shape
of a witch’s shadow,
hat like a dagger,
arms rising to curse
our wicked intrusion,

her figure exposed
before flight?
