Into The Wild - Wendee Walker        

Into The Wild Essay

Chris/Alex or is it Alex/Chris

You ascended, transcended, upended conventions
Abandoning all that was expected
Leaving the world in perplexed awe
Boots, backpack, bags of rice, and hobo beard

Chris/Alex, Alex/Chris
BEAST! With a heavy burden
you still made room for BOOKS
And a homemade leather belt
Free, PERPLEXING yet, adored

Chris/Alex, Alex/Chris
“...taking your wounds to the wilderness for a cure…” (70)
You are everywhere now!
You are the dew on grass
You are the sparkle of stars and sunrise
You are everything good, and right, and innocent
You are the traveler’s heart

All the best,
Wendee Walker
