Today’s Poem

Misremembering

 

It is a foolish thing to forget

your hometown, wrapping

it around a banjo riff,

and joking with city folk

the toothless and cow-tippers.

When the water rises again

from the sinkhole to take

back all your kin, it will

find you on that downtown

rooftop praying to the god

of your parents.
