Fit for Drinking

Someone says snow.
It won’t. I won’t
let this happen–
this death
to birds that don’t

fly through glass. I used to
say I love water

skiing. Have only done it
twice. A lake
in Ohio. Not the big one.
It’s not that I can’t breathe
bilaterally. I just haven’t tried

in years. Superior, Michigan,
Huron, Erie, Ontario. There,

I said them fast
enough almost to forget

there’s no salt
on my lips.
