Take Back the Sky

Mountains in my view
take me back to the sky
with you.
Asheville peaks through the spines
of mountains stacked
high with sky.
Pedalled foot blooms
with light
as I walk along that highway
in my mind.
Blue-skinned peaks rise and fall
with the thrum of my heart
above it all —
alive in my chest, bloody red
the best
the heart that beats
until its final rest.
