Open Lair

I want to take away the space, so there’s no vacuum
and feel flat and neutral
when I spend the fall equinox in the southern hemisphere
upon the Table Mountain plateau

I want to lie there and have dreams about the future
in which ancestors will feature
so they can tell riveting stories of disappearing streams
and rivers I’ll never swim

And when I wake, I’ll still not move
until I’m full of hunger to the brim
and only then will I abseil, but without rope
I wonder how, when I’ll be without a belayer, a lover, god or hope

so on second thought, I’ll just climb down
feet on the ground
and leave my head in the cloud
at least the part of it that is rot
