“Pass To Your Left”
Two figures: yellow-green flashes
Dive into a maize petal-pond,
Packed densely. Wind sweeps my ashes
Toward the weathered, red brick background.
Broccoli, gravy, barbeque chicken,
Cole slaw, corn bread, corn pudding and sweet tea,
Pulled pork, pot roast, pecan pie and biscuits,
Fling Tea, mashed ‘taters, bacon fat green beans…
The Itis sets in as we hit The Road.
Five bucks=a pack of Deuce-Sevens;
Nashville Sun glints on gold–
Click! Snap. Heaven.
