Walking Like a Savage (Draft 2)

Walking Like a Savage (Draft 2)

don’t know whatever
to do with these
poetic dilemmas
along the way

I just want to walk with you

Just want to stroll where
there’s a stream, where
you will laugh, even if
the bear will take its fish,

because he will be
hopeless to his instinct

and as for you
I hope I’m not too savage.

Walking Like a Savage (draft 1)

Walking Like a Savage

I don’t know
what to do with this

I just want to walk with you

Just want to stroll where
there’s a stream , where
you will laugh, even if
the bear will take its fish,

because he will be
hopeless to his instinct

and as for you
I hope I am not savage.
