As with many 7 Word Itch poems, I think this one has potential. I wrote it in less than 24 hours and haven’t revised it all that much. Then again, these poems aren’t supposed to be masterpieces.

Wild Boy

He craved to live an
extraordinary life,

to transform the mundane into
the magical,

to make of the body something
holy and expansive.

He began drinking rain and he
drew in the sky.

He slept in the thickets,
sang to the birds,
made pacts with the roots of

until all evidence was near:

his pain was a passport
to the spirit.
