Border Blues

Technically he had arrived, but
the cold woman with a red leaf on
her shoulder was quick to remind him
he was not going to stay. He was unwelcome.

2000 miles of pilgrimage turned around.
Camera full—hundreds of road-trip smiles:
one in front of the “Welcome to Canada” sign.

But the cold woman reminded him,
the sign was not written for him.
