Mouthfuls of Mountains in the Dark

14 May

Tonight you and mythology
both weigh heavily upon
my weary mind.

The last time I saw you
standing there in your
hand you held a bag
of ripshake smokedance.

Now the ebb tide carries
the nightbird into
Heracles Cavern
to drown along
with me.

I hear its gurgling cry
in the dark and cold.

It is always night here
underground
far
far
below you.

Tonight I learned
to see in the dark
one bite at a time
I ate the mountain
until my eyes
glowed.

Mouth Full Of Mountains Eyes Full Of Light

      Namaste, thanks for stopping by. It is always nice to know one’s work is the cause of mental exercise.
