Altitude

20130130-213558.jpg

Climb
As high as you possibly can
Until your fingers ache
and you can’t make a closed fist.

Climb
with muscles that twitch with tiredness
and a grip that loses a strength contest
with a tube of toothpaste.

Climb
until your breath is labored,
until you are so high that the ground
is father away than the stars.

Then, when you cannot reach
a millimeter higher
you will know
what limitless tastes like.

Say something, Crazy Reader!
