For Scott

When the Wild Thing went to college
He met a girl
Who was into David Bowie
But never read Maurice Sendak
She only read "adult books."
Because of the praise she was given
and the trouble she could get into

The Wild Thing was sad
But he was always a creature of action
and touch
Maybe because his voice didn't quite work

The book had to be secured
And quickly
And read out-loud
In the voice like no one else's
to the very serious girl
Who needed to know about wild things
To become one
