birthday gift.

Let me bestow upon you

A midwestern wind that snaps power lines and uproots trees

To be always at your back.

Silt of the river to settle in your lungs for reminding

That you are of this earth.

The iciest of water running  through your veins

To keep your cool from the hardiest of fools.

And let the graciousness of this land we are now in

Be yours for the joining.

for my son who is 12 today.
