Ferry Thoughts

When the biggest news a town can have

is that the ferry has mechanical difficulties,


that’s the kind of place where what’s important

is in its proper place.

Not the evening news or what the celebs wore,

but what is broken on the ferry

and when it might be fixed.

That’s news.

That’s our real America,

where the ferry is the news

and the river is the transport

and the sunrise on the water

says good morning, America.
