Adore the Ladder (especially the rungs in between)

For Prince

I
Don’t
Know if
We’ll ever
Witness anyone
Like you again. there was nothing

You
Could
Not play
(Or make your own)
Raising the bar of
Icon beyond that of your symbol.

You
Will
Be found
For all time

We
Are
With you

&
You
With us–

How your story started is how ours
Will
End… & I can still hear you singin:
“Ain’t
No use in half a story, half a
Dream
One must climb all the steps in between
…I’ll
See you in the afterlife, my friend.”
