Idaho, 1989. Idaho Courier - Bizarre events of recent
days continue with the disappearance (thought suicide) of Thor D.
Wrothdrowsy, ex-professional mountaineer, Korea Veteran. You'll remember,
in recent years Mr. Wrothdrowsy thought he was a woman, and secretary to
the late poet, Wordsworth.
Wordsworth walking, such a sight sore eyes should see.
His visions - always visions - mark the time,
and every step goes somewhere: always forward,
-to the house, climb
the hill, off the strip
marked by roadkill
If you're desperate for some blanker verse don't
come here. Oh, this walking is such hard work!
heavy breathing's just the basics. You'll see,
once you're here.
-have to get in touch,
the job sucks - write
nothing not his
Question. When is a walking not a walk?
When is a wanking not thinking? - a view
from the summit, panoramic - everything
but a mountain.
-at the phonebox
wait for an emphatic tone.
Leave this message:
Be a step behind at each stile; on the shore
at each lock. See your hand read as his print.
Be penultimate at every occasion
but your own departure.
-gone by sunrise,
only way to miss breakfast.
No fun on a full stomach.
