Boys go wild

being sent out between dawn dusk

go entertain yourself

bring nothing back

no live treasures

find friends

live adventures

I’d go to the woods

make dens tree houses

after first scouting for changes

strangers in my domain

one time finding a herd of drowned pigs

that later nobody believed me as true

& I’d see my uncle

walking the woods looking for something

finding a lady

who was not my aunt

that he seemed very friendly with

he’d give me money

to go to the corner shop

& when I’d get back with my bag of goodies

they’d be gone

I can’t tell you how I knew

but I knew not to talk about these two
