A fast read, but a poem that leaves you waiting for something that you can't put your finger on. "That Most Terrible of Dogs" gives you waiting possibilities such as "waiting to take the shortcut, the Barrel. Waiting to increase my vocabulary with an adventure safari, in homeroom where twelve dead monkeys hang." Just to name a few, so what are you waiting for get your knife a stab a glance into The Politics of Knives.
