He said The dying dog could barely walk but lunged  

like nothing had happened, We discussed  

unknown reserves vs. new  

energy generated by expending, How a lyric  

sense changes as our minds/bodies do, We learn  

by is it the rain or grasses racing today  

She said The tall green overtook  

the road, while they said clarity and meant   

we do not wish to see  

we never have
