Jackpines

Those are the plans
Full steam ahead
Tar from sands
Wringing hands
And $$$
Nevermind the wetlands
Nevermind the caribou
Nevermind the residents
Mine
Mine
Mine

But the tide is turning
The streets are burning
And this will be undone

Follow us
We are on the path
And going another way

Terra firma
Terra justice
Terra peace
Standing tall
And taking back the Jackpines

juniper

on the branch
in the glass
under snow
over ice
chin chin chin
a little gin
is nice

Range

Flakes are heavy on the ashes
White upon white upon white upon
Red
Frigid frozen
Sleeping
The land of nod
In a whirl of dreams
Tuck in with me awhile
A shiver a quiver
Nestled in seams
