Aboard My Canoe

I’m here
listening to my top hits
of twenty-twenty-one

I’m here
listening to CANO
that I binge listened
all summer, our (?) summer

I’m here
swaying, singing along
realizing even if I shared
the lyrics to this award-winning tune
you’d fall overboard

I’m here
giggling as I write this
you don’t even know the band’s name
is a homophone for canoe – in French

I’m here
knowing I’ve sort of fallen
off the canoe myself

// each on our own side of the [sturgeon] river//

I’m here
on my side of the river, still tonight
hasn’t frozen over quite yet,
like my tender heart

maybe it’s still
somewhat hopefully

either way,
here’s the link :
