The Wild Life

I think they tease their hair just to look a bit wilder a little more… “coyote ugly”. Perhaps a dash of “sports make-up” under the eyes to cut down the glare of the headlights. They roam the streets hang out behind dumpsters (probably smoking, telling coyote jokes”) wondering why Mom and Dad moved to the city. Their den is in the Arboretum overlooking the Boston skyline. They go to Public School(s) dumpster diving…. Covid box lunches. Soon there will be more a litter is due. They may have to move find a bigger place… in the city…. good luck with that. John G.
