Lake Walks

Erie Beach

My sister goes to school
in Oswego.
If you walk too far out of your
dorm in a snowstorm,
you could fall into the lake.

But when it's sunny
these quasi Canadians sunbathe
or throw rocks at each other
and the spiders.

They have a seawall
which you're not supposed to walk on
because if you don't time it right
the tide will come in
and you'll drown
(or be rescued and arrested by the coast guard).

So naturally
doing so is
 a rite of passage.

I preferred to sit on the beach
and watch autumn roll in
across the lake 
down from the great
frozen
North.

SUNY Oswego is
one of New York State's many state schools.
