Voyageur motel

Voyageur motel…
Wherever Minnesota
Across from a cemetery
I go there later on…
Castle Danger first
Big hips and lips, the sheet slips
A superior view
Something to chew
What can we do?
I’d say we had the best day too
Now faux news, Fox News
And Las Vegas blues
I love America and i am sorry
And false flags
I read outside of the box
And eat lox when i catch it
Outside on plastic
My dad is dead like god
But i will follow in his footsteps
Cant see what i paid for unless
I try every aspect and then repent
A man empties his truck now
And the neon lights
Catch tombstones like
We will egg McMuffins in the morning
So fast, so gone, that’s why

Lake Superior

Just past Duluth I saw it again, the gains along the highway, cutting tributaries, and well named signs. I saw Shore Creek, and cars parked along it, the patient fishing. Tired eyes captured the sun and we ate Betty’s pies in her quaint cafe. It was simply up there as we were, that vast deep blue along crimson spotted red, and varied pebbles. Seagulls cawed. How it was made: volcanos. Set up along verdant pine. A truck bounded past meltsnow and the hot going as it were. Lake Superior, North Shore, just past Duluth I saw it. Such a reprieve, and just up a bit. Hard to imagine its incredible immensity. Try and take a moment to see across where it bends at the horizon.

Coho Cafe, North Shore

Railings and pines
and silhouettes,
silverware sounds
of the cafe
where we sit,
among pages
& digital notifications,
hunger patience;
Monday the busy
world and our short
necessary calm.
Yes. and a short
moment of it noticed.

The North Shore

Drift wood lie on the ground bent
Fixed there in midday sun ease,
Exhausted on mind’s fickle intent
Hard resting, come at fast release

Visible footprints mark this stroll,
Paths we meet coming toward,
Gambling dice we take a roll
Wagering what value we can afford

Making way we wander ’round
Pleasantly procured- what sight we sought;
Relishing that which we have found,
Making play with thoughts wrought

Likewise we stand the surrounding wilderness we stare,
Taking inside us breath, becoming alive through fresh air.
