Scarper

SCARPER

-verb intr.

To flee, especially without paying one's bills.






















When my husband returned last night
Hermes had to scarper so quickly
That he left a foot in the courtyard.
Most people might leave a shoe
Or an imprint in the tulip bed
It takes a god to abandon a limb.
We made a fountain out of it.
