another howl p97_opt.jpg

money behind
Money from where
      this standard becomes
      poison in the well
           a thing of the past
                   the optimists say

all words, including title, from page 97 of Shutter Island by Dennis Lehane. poem #86 of the First 100 Days series, and poem #15 for National Poetry Month.
