an interesting peak

like light,
take decades
to emanate from
the neural structures
that assemble these shadows
from the gentle beginnings of interference
through the dendritic spines of attenuation
down through the planes of
troughs and crests to
valley and peak
eons cre-

decending the mountain,
was hard on the knees,
the gravity felt forced.

yet now on the way
down, it’s a gentle
soliloquy with an
unknown guest.
