GENERAL SWIM

There's a huge mountain—but inside
out

with a peak
that points down

and a road
that grows wider,

where the going
gets easier

except that it becomes
hotter and ever more

crowded with other people—
as you climb
lower,

to
the center, actually
moving toward

your fear
and uncertainty
instead of treading over it.

until
your pain
and theirs

join and commingle
in a mild
underground
river

of very pleasant warm water.
