UP Camp

Rag rugs
scatter on wooden floor

A fly got in

Arctic water
waves on skin
reddened feet
only dipped for seconds

Sand everywhere
watermelon rinds
tossed in weeds

Several dozen
orange pop
bottled in glass
in the IGA paper bag

hot dogs on sticks
picked from the tree

Amber evening
fire blazing
sparks shoot skyward

Glowing skin
out too long
sweatshirt hood

Sleep well tonight
on a bed from 1940
when has this blanket been washed?
Too tired to care.
