James Tate’s plaque on The Iowa Avenue Literary Walk reads:

I’ve seen fox, deer, wild turkey, pheasant, skunk, snakes, moles, guinea hens. I’ve thrown a boomerang that never came back.

This line is from the poem ‘In My Own Backyard’ in Worshipful Company of Fletchers.

Tate, James. Worshipful Company of Fletchers (The Ecco Press, 1994)
