An Ode to the Humber River in the Fall

Updated: Dec 6, 2020

In my favourite place in the city I take a backseat


And laugh at the mindless perseverance of those schools of salmon


Those ridiculous creatures โ€” do they know they have an audience


Of ogling humans who ๐˜ฅ๐˜ช๐˜ฅ ๐˜บ๐˜ฐ๐˜ถ ๐˜ด๐˜ฆ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ต๐˜ฉ๐˜ข๐˜ต and ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฉ ๐˜ต๐˜ฉ๐˜ข๐˜ต ๐˜ธ๐˜ข๐˜ด ๐˜ค๐˜ญ๐˜ฐ๐˜ด๐˜ฆ


Every time they catapult themselves into frigid waterfalls of ambition


Born to return home just to leave again


Only now, when the fallen leaves paint the earth amber and ash


If you will โ€”


Only now, with fish who havenโ€™t made it home
