Merry Speece The 2River View, 7.2 (Winter 2003)


Where are the stories of Sherwood Anderson?
Deep in the national forest of Ohio.

A child is lost
and everybody is alive:
"Set the hounds loose."
Hounds gone off,
not a prettier sound.

Silence, silence
and that bird of death at dusk
we'll never see:
will, will.
