riding in those vertical horizon days
came near to wreck our Jeep
with their sliprock seat pucker cliffs
like “fly-on-the-wall” …”again and again”
hold on…okay, now gun it
Oh Christ…that’s why it’s “metal masher”
adrenaline wash fear…gas pedal brake
follow that line kamikaze guy took up “widow maker”
rock-rail graze that bolder
scrape sparks across the pan
breathe over heartbeats
at the edge of earth

Love the much needed adrenaline you are injecting into the season….Still wondering about your past/present though. I bet that’s a photo from your family picture album.
Most likely it’s just winter “cabin fever,” Jana. That photo is Moab off road, yet not our Cherokee. Scary, good times.
