But I didn’t die

climbing Devil’s Teatable

on acid

and a wild ivy laden descent

still found solid ground


through surreal twists

avoiding gullies

matchsticks flickering out

and moonlight obscured by clouds

survival unlikely achieved

Possibly based on a true story.  I sought consultation with Jimmy Swaggart shortly thereafter in an attempt to sort things through.
