20 is the high (July 2014 long wknd)…..

we have passed through the land of permanent concrete
glad to see new 403 signs for Tim
Hortons
field.

just

the sign tho.

labour day shows little promise for
game time-
instead we focus on this(civil)weekend
a long trip for a short few days
meeting
family from Vancouver
and
family from Ottawa
all watching for rain to hold
until we leave again
Sunday.

summer

isn’t summer this season.
but who’s going to complain?.
Sunday we’ll
pass the Tim Horton
sign,
we’ll whisper, ‘Ivor
Wynne’-
prepare ourselves to make
it back,
through the land of concrete.

-‘the men are working 7 days a week
to meet deadline’……….

Toronto

goes at her normal QEW
pace-
