‘’It’s all language, I am thinking

on my way over the drawbridge to South Portland,

driving into a wishbone blue, autumn sky, maple

red, aspen yellow – oaks, evergreens

stretching out in sunlight. Isn’t this all

message and sign, singing to us?’’

— From “Today, the Traffic Signals All Changed for Me,’’ by Martin Steingesser, of Portland.
