The Adirondack Review

Bonnie

Bonnie travels with a
One-legged man.

The garden denied their footprints.

Hoping,charming Bonnie washes his
Clothes in a river...

                         A fight broke out in town...

Gasoline and roses shouldn't make dates.

Soon the travelers tread dirt and bone.

A crow spoke...
"Sly they were at the soft hearing parlor
Down past a street sign..."

Transforming cobra has shown up and starts
Shooting six guns...
         
                          The parade left town
                      The weather became ill...

Bonnie began to sing...
