The Summit

Climbing the mountain,

you walk on its rim  

scratching the surface

never let in

Once at the summit

new footing takes hold

rock you can stand on

—legend foretold


Climbing the mountain,

never look down

focus above you

reach for the crown

Others who failed

and others to come

will follow the tracks

—that lead zero sum


(The New Room: March, 2022)
