Big Lift Ferry Poem F400

Colin Kaepernick –
Speaking my language –
In his newest Nike ad

Notes to this poem…

This is the “Believe in Something” ad… and I LOVE it! Way to go Colin and Nike! And the writers and others who made it happen, of course.

Four hundred poems for the Big Lift series of poems, yes! I believed I could. Fate just needed to give me a little coincidence of an opportunity tonight to help in a rare closure on the rare time I needed to go to Dartmouth and back… or just back in this case with the timing of the closure and my trip.  🙂

The F-series poems are part of a collection composed on my ferry rides across Halifax Harbour when the buses aren’t crossing the MacDonald bridge due to the Big Lift bridge redecking. This should keep happening until at least December 2016.
