weekend magellans…

digital decoupage cwmartin

a burst
of cold air
mingles
with spring rain
sending chills
down spines
of
overeager campers
campers
pitching tents
along the riverbank
in hopes
of finding
lost treasures
but
discovering only
plastic bottles
without pirate maps
or
messages
from long-lost lovers
nor
was there found
ancient arrowheads
from
long
vanquished tribes
known by
all
school children
to have dined
upon a fare
of human veal
but
fearlessly
these pilgrims
of adventure
prepared their meal
of can beans
and
over-processed hotdogs
sharing their culinary delights
along with ghost-story desserts
falling
soundly asleep
until
the coyotes
reminded them
of
where
they were

  1. finding
    lost treasures
    but
    discovering only
    plastic bottles
    without pirate maps… oh i wish they would find some of their dreams on that river bank…for some we’re searching all our lives in the most weird places..ha

  2. Yip! Yip! Yip! Coyotes on the prowl! I read in Orion that coyotes frequent the gulf course in Central Park, NYC these days. Yes, for real!!! They’re the ultimate adaptable critter it seems.
