Canada

O Canada
You sit atop the United States
Like a large floppy hat
a hat
made of moose and misconceptions
about eternal snow
and maple syrup
and universal travel by dog sled

Your birthday is
three days before the birthday
of the head on which you sit
and that head is very loud and boisterous
and does not even notice
the hat it is wearing

But that’s okay
because you have Nanaimo bars
and you put cheese curds and gravy
on your fries
