Duluth 1996 by Suzae Chevalier
It was the summer of 1996-
I drove to Duluth with fellow Czechoslovakian.
Now Duluth is beautiful in the summer and the fall
The “bird watcher” visit and photograph it all.
Lake Superior also has ships large and great–
Lake Superior keeps Duluth warm in winter
and cool in summer never higher than 88.
Drove around downtown
College nightclub is what we found.
I wore some scarves
which wrapped around
around my waist
It looked fashionable and in good taste.
Everyone on dance floor watched my scarves
they saw how it began wrapping around my arms.
College girls started dancing like me
I was surrounded by ton of girls in a sorority
“I Wish I had Jessie’s Girl”
was the song I danced to
College kids watched me with all my moves.
When I left they all said “She’s leaving! ”
my friend told me and I’m not kidding.
I will go back there some autumn day
before winter comes and the leaves fly away.
