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
