Dogs 2018

HIGH COUNTRY
(8/1/18)

I like
to spend
time
up there

see
the snow

the alpine
meadows

feel
the cool
breezes

smell
the fresh
air

experience
the shifted
perspective

and the
isolation

oh

the isolation

I finally
feel as if
I belong
upon this
earth

then
a car horn
sounds

a dog
barks

someone
yells
at someone
else

someone
yells
at me

"wake up
asshole!

yer gonna
git
runned over!"

and I
return
to these flat
city streets

to the
summer
sweat

knowing that
there is
a far
better place

hoping
for another
coming change
in elevation

very
soon
