Back to Iowa
You promised you’d make it back
to Iowa, where the fifth season
gives us time to enjoy the other four.
The photos from the Farmer’s Market
are fresh in my mind as I sit and wonder
if they made it all the way to Bagram.
I start the sleds in the shed every so often
knowing they’ll be ready for the trails
once you and the snow finally arrive.
