Richter Scale

if earth quakes

then Spirit shocks.

Tectonic plaints


ideals along for the ride



and disintegrate…

(by the Large)

individual fissures

once without

are entombed

(inside mountains)

and though Brows avalanche

to bury magma

(boiling in eyes)

it’s too late!

Moss-covered Scree

and first blooms

and slabs of bedrock,


surging over jutted Jaw

—an indignant cliff

and scarcely a Lover’s Lane in that regard—

to force Walls

at sizzling surf—


Above all Walls.

Forced Walls that’ll

be scaled

by some nutcase, at some point since

they’re more



El Capitan

and that’s just eyeballing it.

World class

Tug of War

champions are circling, naturally


running with


but those peaks are good

—for all they’re unstable…

Formidable & high,

which is the best place to be.

When tsunamis rush in.
