under canadian skies

January 1, 2010

a shout, scream
in the high street
to a beep, click
on the telephone
like a rush of cologne
up the nostril
or like horseradish when
you least expected it

“because i’m coming home to join you.”

two feathers, cast aloft by
luck, to wonder why
things would never work the way
those homegrown folk will say

we float together (apart)
under canadian skies.
through the kicking horse pass

I know you’re listening.

I bet you’re crying your Blackfoot yell too.
