Steeped unconsciousness



one should not feel compelled to climb a mountain

simply because it is there.

We ask, What if mountains are not there?


this would not be the first illusion

I’ve encountered that got me winded.

Maybe these so-called ‘mountains’

are really just phantasms created

by our unconsciousness,

that climbers sometimes

fall off of.


Part 2: What Price Abs?


In my family we have a story,

how, after my birth,

my father climbed Raymond Mountain,

and upon reaching the top

lifted my newly born self

high into the sky,

and in a strong, proud voice, said, “One!”

Then he lowered me back down,

but then quickly lifted me back up again.

“Two!” Said my father.

Unexplained mysteries

A man boards a 727 to Denver.

For reasons he cannot explain,

he immediately exits the plane.

Leaving the terminal, the man

hails down a taxi, telling the driver

to take him to Denver, asap.

A moment later,

the taxi takes off into the air,

crashing into the 727 to Denver.


How did this man know the plane was going to crash?

Anything is a hat

I believe that any-thing that can

be balanced on one’s head

qualifies as a hat.



See this set of keys?

Now they are my hat.

An armadillo?

Now a hat.


A cracker-crack?

A shnoolzer-sack?

Or, even a fizza-me-gak?

Hat. Hat. Hat.


How about this beret?

… Well, no, maybe not the beret. 

But to be fair,

I don’t think I can personally pull it off.


Still how about this old piece of dried-up dog crap?

Now its my hat!

But you get it.
