What should we have taken
with us? We never could decide
on that; or what to wear,
or at what time of
year we should make the journey
 
So here we are in thin
raincoats and rubber boots
 
On the disastrous ice, the wind rising
 
Nothing in our pockets
 
But a pencil stub, two oranges
Four Toronto streetcar tickets
 
and an elastic band holding a bundle
of small white filing cards
printed with important facts.
