"These are the steps that Ruth built
Loving kindness in each nail
Planks that never trip the feet
Lead you from the shady street..."
"I am in a box.

Someone owns the locks.
Nowhere left to hide...."
"How come the kitchen's still a sight
Where are the Brownies when you need them
I hope they change their minds and come tonight
Woke up this morning and the porch was full of sour milk..."
