Found Poem: For the Record

For the record

suspicious persons and barking dogs haunt the county:
(along with the ghosts of decisions past, present and future
they show their faces at the most inconvenient times.)

they go in your window, at your door, out in public -
or stay just stuck by the highway as you choose yet one more time
whether to be good or whether to be kind...

or whether to drive on by, bye bye, baby, bye bye?

From Lucky Talk Journal - a creative
riff on a "found poem" in For the Record:
10/28/10, Wallowa County Chieftain, KB
