  • rubbly basaltic volcanic valley sage floor
    transformed
    a green carpet
    for cows
    all
    possible
    pipes
    gears
    wheels
    pumps
    electricity from split atoms
    tractors dig trenches
    lines in papers
    sketched in an office
    pieces divided in a white domed villa
    steel pipe straws
    laid down
    together
    like toys
    generators revving
    sucking
    sucking
    sucking
    sucking

    somewhere
    briny shrimp
    seek the lake
    among
    the flakes
    of dried mud

    I am using Cowbird to share the story of a 15,000 mile road odyssey I took in 2011, which started with me quitting my job in March and setting out in June for a loop around the US and Canada. It's less of a day by day narrative and more of an attempt to tell a story of the story, with some amounts of imagined bits that emerge on looking at the media from the trip, including the more than 1400 images, videos, and audio files collected in my digital time capsule, the Storybox.
