Backpack Hunting

Picture a man

Keeling on a wood floor

A fireplace cackling in the background

Before him a mountain of gear

A rifle and a backpack

He grabs a knife

Smiles as he thinks of trips its been on

He puts it in his pack in its place

Now a grimace.

He holds a broken stove and its replacement

He thinks of the food and warmth the stove provided

Now he looks at the new untested stove uneasy on its dependability

He puts it in the spot the old stove occupied for years

He lifts a second pair of shoes

Looks at his pack

And puts them on the floor

He repeats this process until his pack is filled

He places the pack by the door and the rifle in the closet

A deep breath for a night of fitful sleep

The hunt starts tomorrow.

Hunting off a Horse

Hmm.. Do I really need that second box of Twinkies?

Yes I do.
