cloud-mountain...

I went to college in a city i've been thinking of as Cloud Mountain-- and i'm back here now... the real name of the town means "clear mountain"-- but the real mountain, which lures and looms over the edge of the trees, is actually be-misted and obscurred quite often-- hidden by the sky itself; or the shadow cast on it by Champaigne Coast and its industrial tiers... the plastic and inorganic clouds, the supple and immense wind-blown trees below. the place is green, significantly more so than the surrounding neighborhood of towns, and this is where i have spent more time than any other, except for foxtown... The Cloud-Mountain Colleges, from which i graduated, only over a year ago now-- have been ranked very highly, very recently, in this strange nation... in its schools of that type... what a different place it is...
