Looking Out at the World The hills swell like green bellies to the eye - Separated by lengthy rulers of emerald thread. From here I am Herculean, I breathe at the view, and it breathes Back at me. It is soundless, Unmoving as death, Except for one car - A red kia. It bleeds Its way through narrow bends. I look down and there is a cut on my arm A steady trickle. In this moment from up here All things are connected.
