POEM: Yeti in Shangri-La

You wonder how anyone could
believe in Shangri-La,
like it must take damage to one’s
neurons or ganglia.

But if there’s a place I would search
for Yeti high and low —
it would be that Himalayan
land called ‘abode of snows.’

If you can see the vast expanse —
the mountains stretched for miles,
and asked about a lost city,
make your smug denials,

then you haven’t truly seen the Himalaya.
