scenery

I’m trying to recall the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen:
Pacific ocean: sharks.
Atlantic ocean: more sharks.
Rocky mountains: snow, bears, death.
Aerial view from 10,000 feet: i can’t make any of those objects out, plus plummeting death drop.
Yellowstone: snow, bears, wolves, bison, volcano, death.
Grand Tetons: snow, bears, death.
Grand Canyon: death drop.
Costa Rican rain forest: wet shoes; death from pneumonia.

It occurs to me that the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen is
in front
of me
every night…
the bottom of the bottle,
and then death.

Recently moved back to the States after living 16 months in Vietnam. I write to remove the thoughts trapped in the cobwebs of my psyche before the spider envelopes me whole.
