I Stay Here Long Enough

I stay here long enough to know
what my ancestors knew
and survived through —
cold, rain, sleet and lake effect snow.
And now I know
that having tasted of what
my ancestors knew
I can let go
and go and go
to one place seniors go
— the sunny Southwest
which given a dreary Midwest
winter is the best.
