"[P]sychologists from the University of Virginia . . . found that introverts prefer the mountains, extroverts prefer the ocean."

"As a hobby, mountains appeal to those people who in normal circumstances are said to have a great deal of time on their hands."

We are in sum an
Extroverted ape.
Look at the coastlines
From orbit at night.

Concentrated light
Attends bleak cities
Outlining the plates
Tectonic. Oh well.

Tsunamis never
Did betray the heart
That loved beach. I am
A poem composed here

In the mountains where
Disaster reaches
Stonier fingers.
I like loneliness,

Aloneness: I make
No fine distinction.
I admit I crave
Cold lakes to swim in.
