Yukon Gold

The town of Whitehorse got its name – from rapids that looked like a mane.
The water was fast,
and destined to last –
while lights in the sky played their game.

It’s six thousand kilos from us – relentless, those winter wind gusts
bring folks to their knees –
but thanks, if you please,
no passport is needed – no fuss!
