The Ascent part 1

Into the Ascent now
three weeks I sat in sadness
seven weeks of recovery

we’re into the Ascent
I’m marking it by honoring
my teachers
inspirations and
influences.

Tutorial

Will you be my teacher?
Certainly.
How?
Like this —

He threw himself off a cliff.
I went up to the heights
above me sky
below the sea, rocks —

Go, I heard.

Later I bled all over my work
My teacher exploded
Into a thousand sparks —
Also like this, he said.
