Plateau

You deny
that you will ever reach it-
that the exhilaration
of the summit
will always remain
in the delicious future-
that the drug-like high
of traveling toward the climax
will linger forever
as you enjoy the new
and spectacular views.
And you won’t see it coming-
the plateau-
but you know you’ve reached it
when all of a sudden
you can only climb back down.
