Nancy and I walk a lot. I can’t recall how long ago we found our first fork in the road, but forks in the road are like a lot of things: once you start looking for them you realize there are quite a few out there in the world.
We often begin a walk with one of us saying “What’ll we do if we find a chicken?” and the other adding “or a puppy?”
We call this the New Jerusalem Flea Flicker Sheet because we found it as we walked past the New Jerusalem Baptist Church. We hope the game went all right.

Don’t you flea flicker me Hail Mary
Button hook ain’t goan help you now
Crack back ain’t allowed Jack
Falter you got a quarter back sack
I see a long line
An arc without the two by two
I see the spinning skin from your daddy’s hog lot
Coming home coming down
To the cradling hands
The long lean cradling hands
That you’ve got.
SPOON REST TOTEM
