To know

I never feel as defeated
as I do two days after victory—

to wake and find in finishing
some other self diminishing

and though atop, I stop and wonder—
at what my feet might have pushed under—
possibilities that had no time—
somehow now lower than in the climb

as if I can never reach such heights
until they've gone below

as if the opposite of hope
