Obama In Montana

Obama In Montana

Obama in Montana

my great grandfather O’sullivan had a peg leg.

He piloted the St Lawrence river
for Alcoa aluminum in 1903 when the ice trapped his barge
and Iroquois moose hunters saved him, but not his leg.
everyone in Colosse gave him up for dead
but John showed up and surprised my great grandmother Rosalie
at the back porch on easter

as she was preparing to go to church.

the nation electing Obama president feels like that.
