Early I took my keep-me-alive-for-another-day
Pills from their slot for Wednesday and walked
Right past the blue tarped waiting grave.
Hurricane Barry provided a reprieve of two days
Now 90 plus through Sunday the forecasters say
And if that wasn’t enough to vex
They pile on top a heat index.
It’s time to head for International Falls or Grand Marais
Maybe even risk the road up to Hudson’s Bay.
