          the Missouri expedition leafless trees round every bend /jt mud pies with worms after a day of exploring /ct limbs and a torso caught in the sand dredger /jt brown uniform we trudge the streets with girl scout cookies /ct 93's old levee not far from the new mall in gumbo flats /jt copperhead sunning itself I'll just wait to water the garden /ct first thunderstorm only the thorns are red on the rose bush /jt through all kinds of weather the rusted plow /ct what a day the hobo down and out from a Santa Fe boxcar /jt few blocks from the casino someone's lucky penny /ct prairie dog town one horse hurt for this movie /jt desk with cubbyholes my unfinished work on the unfinished pine /ct
