    Bison, you have been posting so much interesting and accomplished material, but, for me, this poem really takes the cake.

    I am completely captivated by what you have done here. I feel this poem, deeply.

    Mischief makes us
    Better than angels

    Indeed. This is beyond Likes and salutes. Thank you for sharing.

    Wonderful use of Twain for a muse. "Life is hard and disparate. Accept it." Very well done, Bison! (Of course, now I want to listen to Rush, but that is only indirectly your fault.)

      give away my eyes is the line that affected me here. !!
      and of course the mark twain references. your use of landscapes.

        A plethora of lexical gems, in a tiny space.

        The depth of your phrases, the imagery and mood, a nuanced piece, without question.

        Fine work, somewhat under-appreciated, I fear.

          There is so much to like about this, Bison! Youth writing about youth! Bold, adventurous, yet thoughtful and showing great maturity of thought and expression. This is excellent work!

            I read both Sawyer and Finn, it seems ages ago, and this makes me want badly to schedule time to revisit both! Great enjoyment from this piece - thank you Bison!

            Bison !!!
            Tracks by this:

            A midsummer night I dreamt
            Of a night once spent
            In arms of the earth
            Shattered but so bright.
            I saw a blue light
            That gave way to birth.
            Is that all I am?

            I really enjoyed this! Second time even better than the first! To dovetail the comment by grant hayes of this poem taking the cake... it is yummy!
