    Kickstarter was highlighting a dance project this week, based on Uncle Walt's poem. I can't speak to the dance. But it's worth the reminder of the poem.

    56. We Two Boys Together Clinging

    WE two boys together clinging,
    One the other never leaving,
    Up and down the roads going—North and South excursions making,
    Power enjoying—elbows stretching—fingers clutching,
    Arm’d and fearless—eating, drinking, sleeping, loving, 5
    No law less than ourselves owning—sailing, soldiering, thieving, threatening,
    Misers, menials, priests alarming—air breathing, water drinking, on the turf or the sea-beach dancing,
    Cities wrenching, ease scorning, statutes mocking, feebleness chasing,
    Fulfilling our foray.
