The summers stretch out and encompass the years
while compasses spin summits seem crystal clear.
The higher the ladder the finer the peak.
Until trails and adders gather around our feet.

Triangles run circles chasing paper squares.
With a harpoon they fix the moon in the cross hairs.
Sometimes the higher the climb the steeper the stairs
until trails and adders pile up in layers.
