the bridge from day to night

driving back on the Second Narrows
I see the mountains of North Van
rise higher than I imagine
they can, they keep going
up and up, and from the apex
of the bridge with traffic flying
I look directly into
their deepest clefts:
a bear drifts on the trails
and a hiker half falls down
the slope, one arm out
for a sapling to swing around
 
it’s home (box in a box)
that will save me (if not him)
yet I sometimes can’t decide
should I go up the Cut
or turn on Main, the only options
I see right now, though late at night
when I give up the dayI dream the bear comes calling

Zoo and Crowbar

 

Zoo and Crowbar, a novella, which early readers have described as a fable about one person’s experience of the end of our world; a hypnotic, disconcerting human dream that knows infinitely more than the dreamer and is still the dreamer; a retelling of The Pilgrim’s Progress from This World to That Which Is to Come.
