What is its weight – that grainy white mixture? Does it crush or cushion? When joined at each juncture did it rejoice or riposte in alarm.
Is the strange mosaic of parallel lines it purpose? Or is it happenstance? Does the ashen lime leeching from the brick mar or perfect its cubic whole?
By its use does it make but a wall or does one call it art? Is it, can’t it be, possibly both? What be its function? Hold a roof? Block the seasons? Give use for door or window?
Does this bind of cement ease the eye from bland torment? Does its maze tease the mind from apathetic thought? Do its hidden lines point to possible infinity?
Why lay this mortar? Is it but a stratum, a frame to imperfect bricks? Does it therefore mock what it encases? Or, by its own thick cascading unevenness weep to cover them?
Had it not been there – this white joining solder, would the wall also not have been there? And, had the wall never been there, could it be also be that of it, I never penned these lines?
