Due West

The geese don't know
they're Canadian,
tracking due west over
new growth red tip,
pollen spitting long leaf
and the waterway
of Echo Farm Golf Course.
I've got coffee brewed
for my eldest, who seeks
a wife today.

His Chevy half ton trekking
due west to Atlanta,
tracking a computer connection
from a Kenyan lady.
His alarm is
double past snooze,
the spaniel knows somethings up
even if he isn't yet.

It's first light now,
if this is a promise prepared,
we pray for sure election.
On the road to start a family,
Abraham, Joseph,
there's been some travellin' done.
I hear a zipper
close the duffel bag,
this time it's my
son.
