There are means to an end and then
there is everything I did between 2009 and 2021,
and for that overflowing decade I have no reasonable excuse.
Nothing to declare at customs.
No baggage to leave unattended while the sunset depixelates
and the depravity of having a pass at the teenage airport barista
becomes savagely apparent.


Cole Henry Forster is a poet living in Ottawa. His most recent chapbook, Western Love Songs, was released this year by Cactus Press in Montreal.
