everybody knows

everybody knows
that he
started out

wound up

     The Wound

question is:
what took him?
and what way?

a long way
on foot
it took him

     Took him on

another question:
why stay?

     A Quest

the obvious answer
he got tired

     Right here

This poem was written in response to Impromptu #9 by Frank Montesonti. This is an erasure poem using two different highlighters. My source was page 8 of Maniac Magee by Jerry Spinelli.
