Wild Thing by Steve Toth PDF E-mail


Steve Toth



Like raccoons with food to wash

Like egrets deliberately stepping

Like cormorants spreading our wings

exposing the feathers to the air

Like grebes dipping beneath the surface

We love to do the wild thing


Like flight is a good escape 

Like there’s nothing in between

Not like assemblages of matter

but more like manipulations of energy

Like we’ve traveled a long way

& still we love to do the wild thing


Like a broken line of some 80 odd geese

honking encouragement in the sky

Like bear cubs crossing a road

Like sea lions barking in the distance

Like elks breaking down a fence

We love to do the wild thing
