Walking and Poetry

By DUSTIN WHITLOCK,

You discover new things about yourself when you start a new job. I have found that sitting at a desk for eight hours is neither practical or good for my body. I have been taking every chance to make inquiries around downtown Forest in person like it is 1957. Outside, it is still August, 1957.
