Which Way Challenge

The Which Way Challenge, that Cee began, has been picked up by the Alive and Trekking blogger.  The beauty of it is that it’s free form.

You can include images of doors, gates, roads, streets, exits, signs, paths, waterways, canals, railroad tracks, you name it.

Poem of the Week

I really love Charles Simic‘s poetry. Here’s proof that poetry is not dead and not opaque, far from it.

I couldn’t find the photo he saw, but the slides above are all by Walker Evans.

HITCHHIKERS

by Charles Simic

After a Walker Evans photograph from the thirties

Hard times brought them out early
On this dreary stretch of road
Carrying a suitcase and a bedroll
With a frying pan tied to it,
The kind you use over a campfire
When a moss-covered log is your pillow.

He’s hopeful and she’s ashamed
To be asking a stranger to take them
Away from here in a cloud of flying
Gravel and dust, past leafless trees
With their snarled and pointy little twigs.
A man and a woman catching a ride
To where water tastes like cherry wine.

She’ll work as a maid or a waitress,
He’ll pump gas or rob banks.
They’ll buy a car as big as a hearse
To make their fast getaway,
Not forgetting to stop for you, mister,
If you are down on your luck yourself.
