He ascends the stairs once more
Following the familiar path
Counting another flight
Turning clockwise out of sight

The number does not matter
He has nowhere else to go
He follows the path’s bend
But the ascent does not end

He stands on another landing
A very brief respite
He considers refusing to go
But footsteps can be heard below

The briefest pause on the bottom step
But fear overtakes his resolve
A man follows the eternal flight
As he ascends, he comes back into sight
