Poetry Break


by William J. Harris

from Poetry (February 2023)

You lose
Your place

In a

You lose
The page
In the book
Of  your life

You cannot
Find the place
To put
Your thumb

One page
Looks just
Like another

You look
Out the window

You wonder
Where you are


Is this Calgary?
You ask

Is the
One page
You retain

Calgary Stampede
Cowboy town
Lake Louise
Ice skating
Big bands

This is
The only place
In the heavy fog
