Dedicated to the Grand Marais Post Office
Studying the waves of Superior
Still trying to carve the shore
After twenty thousand years,
I met a local who asked if I
Was having a good time.
Yes, I said, I’ve found two sure
Places to socialize: the bar
Butch tends and the post office
Will Call window.
Butch can introduce you to the
Mushers and tarts, he says, but for
Church folk of other denominations
And family gossip nothing beats
Standing in line for a package.
