Portage

Greetings
From where I-80 from New York
meets I-94 from Detroit
and I-65 from Mobile
and Lake Michigan
just outside Gary, IN
just outside Chicago, IL
just outside the West
just outside the East
Greetings
from hearty Indiana
where the portage begins
where the Frenchmen lift
their long haul canoes
from the lake shore to the
ghostly interior of forgetfulness,
some day’s work hardened
in the pemmican sack,
good eating
for many years to come.
