a post card

Written 00/2008

glad you
didn’t come

arrived at
shack.. cottage?
deep forest
lake front?

tried finding
the lake
by following
frog chants

got lost
skirmished with
briers brambles
slushy bog

fluid out
of pump
color like
warm sienna

heat water
for washing
on ancient
gas stove

immerse clothing
into tub
dying fabric
trendy rust

will be
home soon
just enough
is enough
