slushy sway
the meds
distilling rampart
and nocturnal

cotton batten
to run through
the barrel
on a string

the oil of
the shiny
cartridge of ideals

the weight and wear
and comfort
of it on my hip

from all the
places where
i owned up to
the tables and took
a risk

found love in rooms
for a price

and tasted the dirt
and flesh of weather
when safety and
shelter were
forgone to be
in the adventure

Ontario gets a Nobel
you will also at 82 plus..
who can that tell


I knew people there then....the history...

without history .....
we can make no story
