Postcard from Washington Island, Wisconsin

This sleepy island never rests, waves waves waves – International Harvester tractors rust in place, tall grass rising through dry axles, more trees here than wheat or potatoes – whitefish dinner, light and tender, the islander waitress, fat and sassy – at Fiddler’s Green Pub a piano sits on the front lawn, still in tune – only the moon lights the way after 9 p.m. – this island never wants, there is enough, 10,000 grandfathers casting nets.

on the beech leaf

a sky too big
