Below is an image from the Tarkio boat launch, west of Missoula. It is my understanding, from multiple sources, that the body of Joey Thompson was found by a property owner somewhere between this point and the Forest Grove boat launch.
The picture at the bottom of the post is graffiti on the concrete wall where Joey Thompson was allegedly last seen. There is also a cheesy pentagram and “I love Satan” tag that looks very high school.
Sometimes things can be accomplished in verse when more conventional forms of communication can’t be used. Is this one of those times? Or am I just a poet who likes to rhyme?
a million little Mansons like meth rats on the scene the west it is not Jolly the west is getting mean don't you wet the whistle of the missile men who flex pulling down the pillars for caverns they call sex echo is the vibe now shards of mirror cut thin reflection isn't twin fearful lungs will shut down in river run-through town where crosses are a joke where shanty shacks and knife attacks stem from friends of woke shit, bro, are you triggered can you guess what's next will I jigger ups a rhyme to bring down harshest hex? witches they are busy showing boys the knife deconstruction everything now Zooey wants a wife Joey, on the other hand waits for crime lab fucks well dressed on the stand but going cluck, cluck, cluck which, I guess, is better than going quack, quack, quack at the Poverello Duck Pond with red on white and black hmmm, what am I saying here? ask Detective Guy ask about the LifeGuards and who controls the time when it comes to puppy dogs sniffing out the blood and little Russian flower girls with petals on the run why am I so angry? lots of people ask because I pay attention speak up, then I act and you? how about you sneaking off the hook is it too uncomfortable to take a fucking look? I have said enough watch out for the rest the boots I wear are tough Lord, I did my best
