warts and thorns

May 22, 2013

I helped a toad

cross the road.

No wait, that’s not quite it.

The toad had a plan

I gave it a hand —

I stood between it and cars.

Most went wide

as they passed beside.


Toad stopped at center line.

Next car stopped too,

watched me shoo. . .

eventually we arrived

at the other side.


Storm chased me home.

Did I help or hurt?

Mismatched by stride

I guess I caused stress

Should I have quit?

let it sit?

What did I owe that toad?
