Day 20: "Crooked as a Dog's Hind Leg"
Today's tour poem, by Melissa Range, is another I picked from the archives of the Academy of American Poets website. Its use of the word "crooked" isn't necessarily to mean "criminal," yet it clearly means "not straight," not adherent to a model life or to anyone else's expectations. In other words, open to adventure.
