GEAR: Oyo Mountain


I won't be in Denver this Friday for the opening of the new Topo Designs Store. So, instead, I wrote them this poem:

Dear Topo Designs one day I will have a child whose lunch will always be packed with hand-foraged fruit leathers And he will excel in woodshop and japanese and pottery classes during high schoolAnd he will dog-ear books by Dave Eggers and Doug Aitken and before enrolling in some small liberal arts college located conveniently near a bevvy of nationally protected forests in a state that has long-since legalized marijuana he would most likely take a year off and travel to Arches National Park, and Zion, and also to Yosemite and Denali and  Saguaro-- citing a need to 'spirit quest' before he could truly commit to his studies

-- but before any of that  -- I would begin by naming himafter 

your new in-house brand
