Anecdote
A nameless one, who toiled alone,
And waited for the telephone
To ring, grew restless on a day
When winds blew all his dreams away

There is a hill ahead,
And Death is behind the hill;
I urge the horses onward, onward....

Will is an amazing writer and a good friend. Apart from wonderful poetry that he posts, he occasionally writes to me and tells me funny real life stories that I swear he should publish.
