North Carolina

you should have tired of this place,
but it sticks like wild honey
gets all over and soaks into your skin,
slips down your throat to slow speech;
slurs, heals, suffocates,
drags you down into its red clay soil

  1. Asheville
    And the surrounding ridges, azure blue
    They have cemented themselves in
    My soul
    My heart
    My lungs
    Burn for the calming sensation of
    Fresh air born of
    Ancient, towering pines
    The deepest of misted valleys
    Monolithic mountain passes
    Open skies
