Local Walks

Alt Forest

Of late I’m walking more. I used to stride
off calories, for “science” told me so,
but that was bunk – I put that view aside
the more I read on fat. Today I know
nutrition facts the government suppressed
and corporations paid to hide from me.
I exercise so I don’t feel as stressed,
ingesting banished foods for energy.

I lately walk because I can’t resist
the sunlight piercing clouds, the call of crows,
the lambent air decanted from the mist
of mild mornings, how the ocean blows
on us like candle waft, and how the ground
informs my feet where power’s to be found.
