What is an appropriate poem when standing on a mountain top?
I don't want one that will lead me into canyons of the city
Where Leviathan dwells.
Or an epic that will remind me of lost loves or the girl with tears in her eyes -
I'm so sorry Jenny.
Honestly, I didn't know you cared that much.
I do not wish a didactic poem that teaches me how to be a man.
(although one that told me how to skip like a goat, or live as a marmot would be acceptable)
No, I want to be connected to earth and sky
or at least touch the fibers that run from the horsetail clouds to speckled granite.
So that the Dynamic that is transmitted therein will also flow through me,
and floating slightly above my feet
I will return to the lower places.
