Atop glass pillar
Standing up high
Gazing at the sun
With such defiance
Melting
Slipping down the sides
Of the crystal ice sides
 .
Oozing
Down to the places below
Into to the water
Where the fish of the deep
Gaze with large
But blind eyes
 .
In the water
A stirring
The fish
Swim away
As the water
Begins to chill
Into a crackling of ice
 .
It reaches out
To the pillar
Climbing up
Its sides
Freezing in such an
Opaque way
The pillar
Seems a spire
Extending from the ice
 .
Slipping and sliding
To the base
Of the great
Empty pillar
Reaching the sides
Trying to climb
The slippery slopes
 .
Partway up
Then falling
Continually
Rising and falling
On the smoothing surface
 .
The sun
Who melted pride
Comes out again
In a quick burning
Toasting the land
In a heating glaze
Melting the ice
And shattering
The shiny
Pillar
