Two Mountains

A poem should stink of its poet.
A poet should stink of his poems.

The writer: bent over a page.
The poem: silent in the winter of nowhere.

Both eternally alone
in their spaces.

The two are neighboring mountainsides,
joining at one common origin,
then rising up,
ever away from one another.
