Crumbling is not an instant’s Act

Crumbling is not an instant’s Act

Crumbling is not an instant’s Act
A fundamental pause
Dilapidation’s processes
Are organized Decays.

‘Tis first a Cobweb on the Soul
A Cuticle of Dust
A Borer in the Axis
An Elemental Rust

Ruin is formal Devil’s work
Consecutive and slow
Fail in an instant, no man did
Slipping is Crash’s law.



Poem Crumbling is not an instant’s Act - Emily Dickinson
