From the airport such snow and red
Barns mirror Ohio cornfields, sunrise
At 9:19 AM, the only cops those two
On horseback by the African football
Café, two shots of Linie aquavit in
Front of a fireplace full of white pine.
An attempt at integration via two visits
To the Tronsmo Bøker og Tegneserier
To peruse photos of Ukraine by Otto Snoek,
The sky leaden but tidy, fantastic man
And signet, no crucifixes anywhere.
Among the many ways to travel home,
One is to pretend you can live anywhere
And that you want to live nowhere else.
