give your whirligig
a swig, chalk it up
to aftershock
and watch the auk
dive into a curious sea.

grab your rucksack
bric-a-brac, zodiak
and other signs,
a flock of shrikes
heck-pecking all
that that cracker
-jack cul-de-sac
artichoke duck run

back the truck up.
unpack. steeplejack
shuttlecock squawk
the deck.

pass the buck, back
-stroke your way to


Prompted by Quickly in November, day 28
