Extract from the poem “Rise and Shine”
Walking in the woods
in Mississippi teenager I saw
many thick-assed poisonous snakes mistaken for Satan:
Copperheads, Cottonmouths, Canebrakes.
Deadly eyes staring like a cat under squares of rusty tin
in the tall grass, ‘around the hut of the hunting camp, waiting for the prey.
Or sunbathe among the latticework engulfed by the ivy of the pre-war mansions
I worked and was fired from—
some more than once – rolled up. Patiently waiting.
