Having withdrawn

from the contest,

I live on the edge of town

with a mind for mountains.

I learned that dogs will follow

if you point your feet

in the other direction.

So will

the heart

pounding whole

in places where

musk of warm earth

vapors with the fragrance of spruce.

There is always only one world.

It is simple yet


to walk the line


culture and nature.

One is where

transcendence is possible

for a few.

One is where

it is.
