Straight Lines

19 July 2020

By Philip Kuepper

I stood still and watched
the point at which
they all came parallel:
the Crimson crew on the Charles,
the strollers on the Esplanade,
the traffic on Storrow Drive.
My mind snapped a photograph,
freeze-framing the moment.

  1. Thank you, Philip for the poem. It is a perfect photo. This month we should have been watching the Harvard crew at Henley. This is a good substitute.
