The best poem I've ever read

Updated: May 1, 2018

From Ali Cobby Eckerman’s collection Little Bit Long Time, her first poem “The Mountain” describes the act of writing, or the act of making Art, thus:

The Mountain

Lips crack


the mountain dries up

on my tongue.

Hands blister


the mountain rises up

on my fingers.

I sit to watch

and wait.

A bird comes.

I ask nothing

turn and grasp

the view.

"Little Bit Long Time" by Ali Cobby Eckerman
