Traffic was heavy on the road
so took the path along the river
It’s damp and dim and quiet there.
I smelled a skunk and saw a floating fish and a bottle filled with yellow fluid.
I wonder who roams these woods at night? I hear owls sometimes and sometimes wild cries and gun shots. But not like in the movies – they sound real.
I walk behind the pizza place and smell the garlic. I feel safe. There are no vampires here.
It’s damp and dim and quiet here.
Once I saw an eagle.
