People's Poetry

friendquote poem #12

my birthday lake emiquon too choppy so
dropped my kayak into spoon river its
always held a certain mystique what with
the spoon river anthology though today the
river is not very poetic seems little more
than a mud walled ditch scribbled into a
cornfield still a nice fall day for paddling
I went almost a mile till stopped by a log jam
I wasn’t inclined to go to any effort to go
around so headed for the river’s mouth and
out into the illinois to watch the barges for
a while before paddling back to my car
