From my solemn post, alone on a sun baked cliff,
I can see further than light.
As happenstance and hot horseflies circle,
I can feel those hills burst forth into mountains.
And I can hear the trees fall on deaf ears.
From my perch,
three or so feet glare at my toes.
A rigid sun hides shadows adeptly.
And the wind is coaxed by the birds.
Sure, perspective can be height.
There is altitude to be gained.
But as he increases his distance from the ground, the gravel and grass where his body will land is obscured.
