bus trip—

a letter from home

in my hip pocket Michael

I scoot over for his books

packed train Alegria


in the Frankfurt airport

a stale aura of war Vicki

queuing at the quay

for the late-night ferry Jessica

jumble ice—

too warm for the dogs

on the Yukon Quest kjmunro

walking tree shadows

the last block home Jacquie
