Young Hustler

Young Hustler, Fraser River Estuary, From Pacific Spirit Regional Park, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada
Softwood and salt
The smell’s never more intoxicating
Than when a log boom’s safely set to rest
At the end of a long week

Kyle heads out
To recheck the lashings
I like that about him

He never leaves anything to chance
Always stupid checks his own work

That, and he always buys the first round

Hmmm… continuing the narrative stream. =)

Young Hustler, btw, is the name of the tug boat, though you’d need a full-size image to read it.
