Stirring : A Literary Collection

Teresa White


Dear Mr. Simmons,
Your rules are so strict,
we all have to cheat to survive.

The guy across the street
wants to start his own business.
He can cut an eagle into wood

with talons so real,
he already knows
you won't help him.

He's a dying breed,
asserts Flathead heritage;
lived in the woods for two years,

survived Montana winters
with his wits and Bowie knife --
could trap rabbits

with a string and a stick.
Surely, you'll consider this.
All he owns is that knife

and a mountain of oak
struggling to fly.
