Sample Poem

tonight i was watching bonnie and clyde 
and thought maybe we could be them 
just drop our jobs and the bills 
and take off 
robbing banks for sustenance 
rolling over undeveloped terrain 
with the responsibility police behind us 
we'd shoot past the few farms left in america 
going so fast it would feel like we were headed for the stars.
