scouting freedom



to kill
the mocking
in your head,
you’ve got to
first stone
her song, that
strange un
-quiet longing
for redundant

{careful, she’ll
try to hide in tree,
on rooftop}

and if she comes
back to clack
and c(l)aw
…………at you

just look that
sucker right in
the eye and say



Drivin’ 55 for Toads
