Sonnet #8

Connect the towns by walking paths in case
the cars all break at once, or bikes
are hip, or horses race without a trace
perhaps, or buses stolen, or the like.

Connect the towns by walking paths just so
the animals can walk it in the dark
the ones that figure out the highways’ flow
the corridors of trees in desert car parks

Connect the towns by walking paths for kids
They have forgotten grass and trees
Forgotten that the lawns are artificial ids
of angry men controlling bird and bee

Connect the towns by walking paths because
The dogs will run, go wild, live, and love
