Epic Walk Diaries (January 20)

       no shoulder check
no head either
     the scanner is an alto now
  it will not have a post-humanist future
because it can't scan itself

 who gets on the post-humanist ark?
only the snowflakes
      because they don't resist
     the ark needs flexing
  geraniums barely made it

white berries call
   in soprano
               we resist
      you are post-human enough
 algorithmically infinite

a formal man
      sitting
      inviting not inviting
   a simple lack of complexity
        simplisticated

here mom can you pick this up?
   the crushed beer cans whimper
  burnt
        no need to look
        they will find you
  the labour of having you
    so valuable
      suddenly
      temporarily

tugboats pull 
  loving the strain
      bragging of old tech
  and log drivers
  herding lost trees
    mysteriously organic
      pre-humanists

off trail complexity
 soil as snow
  attention honed 
     a funny dance
        with the brambles
        ferns roots logs
        natural boost 
    bounce
    to dark velvety curves
       of cloudy chocolate 
 mushroom 

jaguar
jaguar
jaguar
where are you going
meeting
on the forbidden road

sanctioned trail
next time

-----
[
  Start 2:10pm
  End 4:30pm
  Forbidden road to trail 7
  down forbidden stairs
  along the almost delta shore
  amongst the logs, reeds, and tugboats
  up the off road on hands and knees
  to the mushroom marker
  forbidden road
  farther from lola
  at least three jaguars further

Epic Walk Diaries (November 28)

oh shit it's pooop
  you thought it would be
   pure
   delight
   special
   seashell, long and twisted
nope
poop

many things presenting
 as solid
   are not
    others shimmer
  surreal 

i want to stick out
  my tongue
   at everybody
 today   as a totem

two lively eagles
 don't mind

a generous soul
  feeds graceful hunger
  a threat of ending
brings a swarm of need
    he ducks
      throws up
 his last crumbs

blackberry flower
 pertinacious
   memories of summer
  sheltering a hopping bird

wandering onto slipperiness
  our luck will run out
 back to the bed of leaves

double bubble pink
  pot pop pop pot
 so pink
   urban pop up

a natural stake
   pointed
  we speak of death
 small and big
    shocks
   pieces and parts
 a claw
   a body
  a mollusk
    a shoe
        nothing is lost
 it sure seems so

waves
 rest
   in soothing suprise
   sitting
   sitting
   pondering
   unexplained
   distant yellow
   no need to explain
   sit

  Start 3:07pm
  End 4:52pm
  Nod at the monument, thoughts
  of campus police, onward to MOA,
  to the backyard looking for the way back
  to the end point, thwarted by mansion,
  back to the totems sticking out many tongues,
  new stairs to wreck beach, trail 4 for small people,
  along the beach, round the point,
  to the breakwater and log jam, trail 6 up the stairs,
  along marine drive, back to MOA and Lola.
