Arrowhead Lodge

where rumbling begins
a half-mile down the road
when someone is coming,

and remain faceless

away from a world
of social-ists, telephones
and satellite dishes,
a spot where photo albums
are the only books of faces.

"The remorse," says Virginia. "You're not like Salinger any more."

I say, "I blew that a long time ago. He never blogged either, so far as we know."
