The Mountain is a Lie
you never question the character of a mountain
until you’re on top of one.
You realize that up here is just like down there,
and you feel like you should experience
something more profound than this.
So maybe you post a picture on instagram
of you meditating on the mountain
to give the impression of the profundity
you think you should feel.
You get lots of likes
and people think you’re profound
and you let people think that
because it makes you feel good
and it gets you laid
It doesn’t matter that you’re a fraud
because so is everyone else.
Because nobody feels what they think they should
on top of a mountain.
It’s all propaganda put out by the
to keep people hiking
up listless climes.
