Snakes and Ladders

Snakes and Ladders


Snakes and Ladders. I’m playing the game that exists between us. I learn the rules, and then within a breath
they change. The board begins to shape-shift, and I find
it difficult to know which game we are playing. It seems so chaotic, and the pieces keep changing
size. Can we stop playing games and be serious for
a moment? Are we avoiding a real conversation in which
we reveal ourselves honestly and truthfully? How can you possibly know who I really am
through the game we have constructed? Can we not interact in any other way? The game needs to end. It does not need to change, because I do not
wish to replace one game with another. We need to talk, because I no longer wish
to play.
