Backcountry, Jason Murray, Winter, 2011

Just a moment more
one more page
Sitting here
doing nothing
going nowhere
but reading
and going
Walking through the
tropical undergrowth
traveling with
riding the rails
through the backcountry
of Russia
but not today’s Russia
the Russia of tolstoy
of Anna Karina
and Peter the Great
Of wars with Sweden
and in a moment
in a tenament in New York
drunk with the travel
unafraid of the rats
and the knife wielding
that occupy these pages.
Afraid rather of the
end of this chapter,
this book, the search
trepadatious for a new one.
Just another moment my dear
and I will come with you.
