Hike High
by Janan Platt, 2002

We hike Round Mountain.
Brown flowers. Scat. Meandering air.

The place where escaped helium balloons
from carnivals and car dealerships land.

The Manzanita grows so thick
boundaries disappear.

We can't pass in some places.
So we take the deer and coyote

trail, the path of life, of love.
The pines are Dr. Suessian

and move musically, waving
to the carivan of clouds.
