Like so many Lego-master monks
Laying out standing-Domino mandalas
These writers I find of pyrotechnical prowess
Choosing, or fashioning, black-powdery words
Them then in powerful patterns to combine
Marching, cornering, curling, splitting
Climbing, diving, diverging, re-colliding
In lines which when by attention are lit
Combust into meaning-laden conflagration!
They wow me, they do; I aah, and I ooh
More than merely marvelling, though, I learn
So that when comes my turn, I can let
My own Lego Domino fireworks words
Build and burst and burn
