The courtroom was tilted, 

both its floor and its ceiling.

Looking from afar

you would think it was about to fall.

It was said that once when the judge

had shaken God’s throne with his verdict

the Lord tilted its carpet.

Inside, people staggered and slept tilted.

They ate tilted and prayed tilted.

So they could remember how easy it is 

to stay “tilted” for a lifetime!
