Ah!! I love it. The free-format of this piece is so simple, and so simply said it almost took my breath away:O) I eespecially enjoyed the crookedly part. Haha, made me think of an eight year-old with missing teeth smiling at me, twas cute.
I'm seeing your confusion in this piece, dear secret. If its about a boy then just say screw it and be happy! Nothing, not just boys, are worth your pain and sorrow if they wopnt help you take it away. Bury the dead dog, plant a shrub ontop and never try to shovel it up again, because then you're only killing the shrub that already started growing...(Haha believe it or not that was from Two and a Half Men)
Anyway, this was an excellent piece secret, as always. I do think the last line in here is supposed to be laughter with a "t" though:O)
Well, this is very ee cummings. I like the crooked because my teeth are a little crooked, and i have two that sort of stick in front of the others similar to the way you typed it. I don't really understand the backwards because i don't understand what is backwards.
