 Oh my friend,

As I waited by Baggage Claim, I was ready

to catch a rolling bundle of sticks and twigs

that would be you

reassembling yourself

from the Alaska Bush,

laughing

because your log canoe refused to fly.

 

Oh my friend,

when the loudspeaker called your name,

wherever you have gone

was it too quiet for you to hear?

  1. Debbie, thank you so much for your continuing support. IOU. 11/10 was the day Thomas was supposed to fly back home, but didn’t show. It was the first anyone realized anything might have gone wrong. Also, coincidentally, my wedding anniversary. This is killing me . . .
