Since the car windows were closed, I can neither confirm nor deny, Vaughn. But it looked the very image of desolation, something not even a crow would want. A crow had been working on it when we drove by the first time.

Crow must've gone looking for Rolaids.

Anyway, dental floss, Pat.

Aurora, thanks for that reading. I feel that way, but, apart from my response to Vaughn, I'll let the poem speak for itself.

So it goes, indeed, polona, and the question for us is what "it" is.
