My Neighbor Understands Mountains

Pull up a bit. Drink the fire
In the clouds. The canyon walls

Are simple things, cracks and stones.
Nothing inside of them wants

To help you or to hurt you,
Even if they enclose shells

And bones of desires as keen
And unkindly as your own,

And as pointless. Take a breath
On the small ledge of this poem.

Everything around you falls
Together around a star.

There are no natural laws,
Only crazed, cracked tendencies.
