NaPo Day 23


Get on
the green bus.
It stopped
when the plane
on the way to the funeral
of steelworker Martin Rukavina
into dense forest,
but the bus
has started up again.
the jeers
that you’re hopping
on the bandwagon,
some wagons
just have
the better music,
Bob Dylan i
s playing,
and anyway the bus
is passing
some nice bits of water—
Minneapolis, city of water,
Minnetonka, big water,
Minneota, much water,
Minneiska, white water,
and, Dakota
for waterfall, or curling water,

In memory of Paul Wellstone, United States Senator from 1991 to 2002.
