Fourth Mountain

I ascend these 

            barren heights, 

      midnight shadows whisper 


no sheltering pines 


                                       to greet me,

     skin on my palms

                     scraped raw 

          by futile messes 

                                          I’ve made,

               Fourth Mountain 

                                enforces a face-off 

   with light and matter


         no refusing this


                                       the obstructions

          sent to defeat me

                                   I’ll not be denied 

                     by fear nor death, 

                                                the secrets of 


                                                                      have touched me
