mountain check

Written by: regina branham

marble structured game-board;
deep thrombosis veins -
of deceit witted paths;
beckoning its challenger

pre-meditated strategy;
an absolute must in-
cluded trust to move

jagged-edged curses bite
on frayed nerve endings;
encouragement to beginnings,
continuous quality checks
of absolute decision

vertical advances permit-
backward tactics
disqualify mankind's majority
too little ground at top
