Subduction

      Comments Off on Subduction

Our fault lines
shifted,
your tectonics
drawing
hot lava from my
veins,
and in our orogenesis, mountains
formed
between
us.

I have finally found a toehold.

The only
way Forward
is Up.

This rope,
frayed
but strong,
will chafe
raw my uncalloused
hands
as I ascend.

I am prepared to bleed for you.

Tell me,
are you ready
to climb?

    In continental drift, the more swiftly and more closely two bodies come together, the higher the mountains between them. Now I understand why people climb mountains.

      I am reminded of a quote by Carl Jung ~ The meeting of two personalities is like the contact of two chemical substances: If there is any reaction, both are transformed.

          Go into the hotel inspection business perhaps? I hear blacklights highlight all sorts of nastiness when shone on certain well-used (ill-used?) surfaces.

          Or you could DJ a few junior high dances and use them for decorations.

          You’d likely have the same “eeeeuuw” factor either way. 😉
