often on those crisco sizzle evenings
when the lanterns came out of cupboards
and the fog hounds would howl the bayou

momma loud would smear down wrinkle candy
and let it dry on the bread board
while she read me god heart david psalms

and got her hands all quivering christian
talking with the holy ghost and jesus
under the influence to go out and heal some

I wore my tadpole amazement over freckles
and she carried her anointing oil thimble
went knocking on the moan keeper's doors

to release their demons back into gator skins

as always you paint great images in this and the word play is to be envied...
I've read three times and each time taken away something a little different...
I have little doubt, when I read it again, I will see yet another layer of things to consider.

good stuff ammigo... indeed
