The Catalog

If I buy these clothes
will someone invite me
to sit in an Adirondack chair
overlooking the lake
in the late afternoon sun?

In my faux shearling jacket
will we laugh over coffee
at our earlier misadventures
in the canoe
and listen
to the sounds of the loon?

Am I the only one
who wants to climb
inside this new fall catalog
to join these happy handsome people
frozen in time?

Look for me under the tree (page 86)
casually dressed
sable corduroy barn coat
a smile on my face
hint of a secret
in my eyes.
