one day the Upper Peninsula will be temperate
imagining a life comprised
of a new wooden box of stuff
like a search for new bees & maybe
a kind of skillset you never
considered: being helpful
with goats or things you learn
as a kid in summer camp but
lose when you need it most
you could move a canoe once
identify the pines / tread water
later once a spring /a boat
filled with beer cans & toes
but what we’re talking about:
here are your favorite t-shirts
a Spanish/English dictionary
knife & block of cheddar
& Wednesday it’s you but Thursday
