Tubing the Delaware
(Summer 2012)
We were at the campground to tube
but decided to check out the arcade
Inside, you could play the skill crane for a dollar a try
and win a Kennedy fifty-cent piece—
still in circulation
On the water, a purple mini Moleskin notebook
was my security blanket while the water carried me wherever
it desired, and I watched the landscape shift
like a slowly changing Inness oil painting
that the artist kept deciding was never
quite finished
