D'Etre Raisins

No sour grapes these,

rather the withered sweetness
of seasons lengthened
to aged fruition
chewed introspectively.

Harbourfront Coureurs de Bois

The still water curls in concentric arcs
from my feathering paddle-tip, over
sun-clear, gravel-bottomed lengths.

City sounds and mallards feeding among gulls
drift through the receding swirls as I meander,
alert to wind-shift, blade and balance.

early 1980's
after paddling Omer Stringer's
12 foot birch back canoe
in the cement pond at Harbourfront,

from Providence and the Itinerent
and Selected Works
