Toe That Line

Nut Jump likes Henry David Thoreau.

“To stand at the meeting of the two eternities, past and future, which is precisely the present moment; to toe that line.”

Economy Henry David Thoreau

Nut held onto the twig with all four clawed hands. He put his nibbling teeth about the apple stem and chewed. The apple fell. Up and down he flew. His stomach hooked into the sky as he flung. But he clung on, giggling. The apple would be good this winter. They would keep it in their cold larder.
