The Side of
A NO DAYS OFF FILM
The Side of the mountain
if you need to,
you’ll find us up past the bible belt,
a few miles up some mountain road,
climbing in the shadows of the buffalo.
by the calloused fingers of the appalachian,
while the sun rises young over the peaks,
dripping like american honey.
a scratch of hard land
where the skinny air
can rough you up
if you catch it wrong.
a place where you learn
that it’s the side of the mountain
where life is sustained,
and there are no days off.
it’s on those sides,
emboldened by optimism,
or perhaps delirium and naivety,
where we choose to build something.
accepting it will never last,
knowing that the mountain will claim it
in the snarling clasp of winter's jaw,
before we ever reach the summit.
