    Off Highway 106
    At Cherrylog Road I entered
    The ‘34 Ford without wheels,
    Smothered in kudzu,
    With a seat pulled out to run
    Corn whiskey down from the hills,
    James Dickey (b. 1923)

    Farm boys wild to couple
    With anything with soft-wooded trees
    With mounds of earthmounds
    Of pine straw will keep themselves off
    Animals by legends of their own:
    —James Dickey (b. 1923)
