Impossible Shores

Droves of minnows
line Highway 61.
Dandelions bloom
into the blue expanse.
Yellow carbon copies disappear
into the world's largest freshwater lake.
I initial the forms and fold them
into the slot for the ranger
at Eagle Mountain.
Tail feathers disappear
around the corner
of Whale Lake.
Water laps at the knees
of the apostle's impossible shores.
Two day trippers beep in agreement
with two road trippers.
On the peak we gaze red crested
into Ontario.
