Kickass and migration

Kickass, the doorstop dog, joins the keeper in proclaiming that he will not cross that bridge when he comes to it, especially if it leads into Baltimore, he will take that “road not taken” hoping it leads to somebody’s woods, and he will be “on the road again” hoping to run into Willie.

In short, he and Phyllis will try to travel like some of the 650,000 migrating birds that were recorded on radar last night making their routine US flights toward warm places to sing from the treetops, build nests, and teach the young ones how to fly.

When the big migration comes for him, the keeper wants his little cluster of cells to be rearranged as a bird, maybe a Baltimore oriole.
