Poem: Rebel 

What can be done

who sings
the wrong song:
not the whistle-filled
Drink your tea-ee
but a hammering
Drink your rat-a-tat-tat
like the bastard son
of a blue jay.

Within a few days, Lawson was on her way up to Hudson to visit the farm. And what began as casual cute animal pics turned into a coffee table book that is being sold to raise funds for the sanctuary and a renewed sense of creative vocation.
