elevators

he liked the elevators they took him or down
anyway he wanted
(almost, anyway he wanted)
it reminded him of his mother and his little brother

when she was playing with him rides
(he was sliding down from her knees down to her belly
then she was putting him back up)
while his younger brother was playing in the tall grass
chasing the rabbits

as they grew, they became remote
they split
he got the land
his brother the animals

one day they both took an elevator to the roof
his brother was able to get one level higher
he got rejected
there was a fight
(he didn’t actually know how to fight)
and how to kill

but he killed

then there was darkness
and another life
and elevators that never took him to that roof again
