DEUS ADERIT

what are my friends doing
in the american midwest
o yes they were born there
and make a clean living of it

there among the great flat fields
where they bury short
stories in thick soil they
pluck banjo songs from the acoustic sky

      and little deer to shoot to skin to
freeze the meat unpack it for the pan then shovel
something in our american snowy
midwest

there they were plopped in states with heavily
voweled names like ohio illinois
iowa and there they shall remain
