Barefoot and on the Lookout

September 12, 2010

And a poem about these recent photos (shot on late afternoon hikes out of Santiago Oaks . . . )

Another Wholesome Hobby


Instead of posing with celebrities

my bare and dusty hiking feet seek out

photo ops with lizards, shiny beetles

and the hairiest of local tarantulas.


Why I am obsessed with sidling up

to creature stunned (now I’m imagining)

by the smooth pink tootsies looming in their path

is a topic for my shrink. In the meantime


I’ll tote my camera, persistent paparazza

always on the lookout for a rattler.
