Until Then

She finally surrendered to x-rays.
The doctor said she’d broken her back
multiple times through the years.
He guessed she just toughed it out.
I guess when my granny watched
her mother burn up in that old farmhouse
she learned of choice: splinter to pieces
or set herself to tough it out.
One day we’ll go back home the sure way.
Until then the landscape bends us.

    enjoyed crappie filets in your honor
    never forsake your southern roots
    God loves us all, but he’s fondest of us Arkies
