sentences that run concurrent

murder
by death
follow bird into the
mystic
dropping through hills
a view of baptist
and crawl
out
to 62
turn into the
closed gas
stations
mom and pop
retired
hit madoc
and travel the stone
rock
spine and find
knighthood
through
tweed into
ottawa
here the front street
furniture store
has found a
second
home and family
has moved
for better
jobs
the chaos of
farm land
crown
land old
dominion
rule

sentences that run together

like a
shield into
rock-face-marsh
turning around
and
making our
way
home
