First Try

Old crow, you sound like
my father’s outboard motor —
ten horses, no tails.

(first publication)

“First Try” added to Poems, Slightly Used.

In the Forum: all Willipedia, all the time.

Hah! I see you're off and running with crow poems. Good stuff. Puts me in mind of Issa:

a horse farts:
four of five suffer
on the ferryboat

Happy Monday!

Ha ha gross - horse farts

Yes, well, Issa was gifted that way. And don’t you love how the horse poem and Joe’s “Happy Monday!” add up to seventeen syllables?
