Poem Of The Week: February 20, 2013

From reader Brian Perry: "I woke up early one morning thinking about growing up and living with my grandpa on the Port Gamble SK'lallam Indian reservation.  I remember getting up early and checking on the salmon in grandpa's smokehouse."

 

Grandpa's Smokehouse

 

Cold and dark

Coffee brewing

Bacon frying

Little boy

Loving man

Dark grey mist

Orange warm alder

Blue? Or greyer still

Cracked plywood

Smoke wisps

Beautiful blue smoke

Long dry strips

Hanging down
