Control Center

At the turnoff to Medicine Creek
the sign always cracked us up--
everything beyond damp
van shovels nerves climbing
through acres of Rhododendron
a story went around in hushed tones:

years ago a leaf
punctured some body's ear
(the boss's) but it was not reported

as we stepped and slid on green
shuffling itself underneath
new signs
pointing to the rest
of summer
