Kayaking the Cotahuasi

This summer, Christian Polar from the department of Bioengineering went kayaking in the deepest canyon in the world, Cotahuasi Canyon, and put together an eleven-minute documentary of his experience.  You can check it out here:

Isolated Incident

Alex Eldredge's poem is accompanied by a photo which was unfortunately left out due to space reasons.  You can enjoy it right here though, along with his poem again:



Isolated Incident

Never mind, they sleep
For the longest time they projected stars upon their mind
Seeing eternity upon their fingers, he wept
Together into the longest night, funded by a multicellular opera they sleep

Foraging for you self
You pass on through
Black out into the light
Unto the consciousness that has no feelings
They sleep

50 miles into the desert
Feeding upon cacti and lizards
Polar bears wander into the city streets
Forgive, forget, and kill
As the water turns into liquid bromine
His footsteps turn into fire, brought on by vodka flavored settlement’s sediment
As he looks back the scene changes into an unfamiliar colloquialism
He finds little concealment in the scenery

He walks back down
Into the crowd
As he is talking to the many quarks
He owns the f***ing world

Foraging for you self
You pass on through
Black out into the light
Unto the consciousness that has no flight
They sleep

He is lost inside in the middle of his unconscious
Forgetting reality with every step
He laughs as the buzzards sing a suite
They follow the path down the cliff
The fishes harness the wheel
Driving him down, all the way down

He wakes into a daze
2:30 Am, afraid to fall back asleep
He slowly and numbingly slips back into his mind
A new thought, he is intrinsic to this new and strange land
He never finds the glass, an unkempt biosphere that will linger on with him
He looks back at her and sleeps
