Big Water Birds perched on wintered limbs of the cypress
Mystery tatooed upon tree
The dueling laptops of Cynthia and Kat (Kat’s bright light in the mirror shining down upon her friend…)
Houma’s Hampton – Dance lessons (the Stanky Leg dance moves, the half-unpacked suitcases sprawled: shoes, pants, shirts, snacks, make-up.)
South Louisiana’s canals – water is everywhere -So Louisiana is as a womb – sloshing, wet, warm
A-Bears – Fried shrimp sandwich and hot salty fries
swamps swamps and more swamps – a beauty appreciated in the day, feared in the dark night
Oh Gumbo Writer, why do you hide your beautiful beloved face from me?
They played me Mountain Songs whilst in So La – oh, why didn’t I get their names?
