vertical horizon days

moab ascent

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
