In Manitoba

Shot through
I should
Find love
In Manitoba.

Rather hard
Though
I live
In England.

In Frank discussions
With among others;
But chiefly myself,
I find I can’t agree.

Shot through
I find
I found love
But didn’t know.

My life
As a self fulfilling
Prophecy.
Isn’t the deal here.

I cane the flavour
Of course,
When the blizzards nest,
Is calling me.

Shot through
My misplaced bolt
Killed me,
I did’t matter.
