Tending the Classics- 42 Days with Huck Finn 10:42

"To be shaping again, model
And tool craft of culture 
How we go on."*

Bad luck be treasured
It's a commin'
Jim's a bitten by rattlesnake.

Apply Pap's Drink,
Help Jim cure snake bite: exit
IN the dark, and look sharp.

Huck in drag knocks on widows door, sivily.**

*Hoover, Paul. Postmodern American Poetry. New York: Norton, 1994. p.220
**Yes I know I spelled sivily wrong, I did this because this is how Huck Finn would have spelled the word.
