earth note 279

ohio river marina
bobbing in the current
early in the season
they're still mostly vacant
     wealthy cabin cruisers
     dry docked or sold
     to the highest bidder

the bicycle trail
runs with the valley
making its land claim
empty docks sway and sing
     metal to metal
     the wind
     a tuning fork
