|  THANKSGIVING

 
  There's a photo of Jake
and me, at Queenston Heights.
Jake is only two

in his stroller. He smiles
a wrinkly Jake-smile,
a hook for hearts.

We're in shade-shifting
sunlight, beneath criss-crossed trees.
I squat beside him, beaming,

a dad in love, hand
on his arm. Mary is
the eye of the camera

that looks on this scene.
She needs to capture
what we all change from.
