rocks of fallen mountaintops sink
in a white-green field,
blanket time, flavor bandage.
everyone i met there followed my love
and truth had its sacred role, if
we could only move our hands,
choose to believe.
i was the favored underdog
until i won. it only happened once.

riprap path in rain, resinous wood.
trickle seep and sell.
firebrands.
fat fish rose
tracking cloud, tipped billow,
still air harbored shot seared column
control place
great drafts favorite flight

did i even love?
i should find out first.
a golden bridge, a wooden portal.
i was in the room so long.
