A Racketeering crowd

June night, two points shine claws skitter down waving tail ratcheting sounds of possums.'

Hi Joe, I am a freelance editor working on behalf of British children’s publisher Nosy Crow. They'd love to include this poem in an anthology they're working on. Please could you get in touch so that I can send you a formal request? Thanks very much. Miranda

I'm trying to remember what astrological events happen in June that consist of two shinning points and the image of claws skittering down a wavy tail makes me think of comets. maybe I'm to tired to work it all out but I don't think this is about possums. or I'm just over thinking it. lately I have been finding my center more and more so I am doing great. hope all is well with you and yours

Oh yes, we have possums. They eat the cat food left on our front porch, that is if some racoon hasn't beat them to it. Love your noisy crowd. Love, daver
