Ode to Weekend

2 islanders
floating pirates
on a quiet sea: mark, twain.

forest park, world's fair, The Boss
and 2 Huck Finns wondering how far
they have come, and how far is yet to go.

20 years ago we dragged our muddy waters,
but now, we simply float onward,
as the wise turtles look on.

Btw, this is not a serious post. I wrote it because Vic will hate it on principle.

More to come but we had a great visit in StL.

The Bruce Springsteen concert was transcendent and we did a ton of stuff in lovely weather (including an ad hoc float trip).
