Montreal to Ithaca

And, from far and close,
there are brothers, blood
and borrowed, before
a half-century of beginning.

There is sharing,
unexpected,
beginning with a Montreal car.

There are eye-opening Moscow
mules and questions at random,
friends and lovers, and
Sadie and Ajax.

And there is Ithaca, like
sought-after music found;
siblings joined;

a crisped night in
country darkness,
and still a winding road
to follow.

[for Paul and Robin Tuttle]
