Rabbit Mountain ~ escarpment
escarpment side of the cuesta. Beyond the tree there is a sudden
It is not wise to get too close to the edge.
There are no railings
no enclosed viewing platforms or boardwalks
but there are steps made by Earth that lead you
to where the wind whistles past your ears
because now you are facing east, towards Lake Superior.
There are interesting maps at your feet, some look like Lake Superior
or something mapped from space
coloured by lichens
and scattered with years and years of broken beer bottles
and surprise! the outline of a rabbit
