Country Feed Supply
As Winter tries to close its fist
on the furrowed fields
where discs turn
for the umpteenth time, there’s a memory
in the kernels of corn
dormant ’til Spring— a memory of green,
a memory of gold, a memory of shoots
and roots to behold.
It’s a miracle of darkness
and the blessing of light
when sun warms seeds to life.
The unfurling of Spring
is the beauty of God, peace
to Summer, praise
to storm, food on the table
and the chattel floor.
From field to hopper,
from hopper to bin, from bin to truck
then up and up
the Country Feed Store’s sixty-five foot
grain-leg drop. Feed for horses,
feed for pigs, feed for cattle,
chicken and eggs. One bag, two,
three bags full
of the sweetest seeds— non-GMO.
Excerpted from CITY SLICKER’S GUIDE TO THE AMISH COUNTRY
my newest book available in paperback on Amazon, April 2017.

Ready beans undulate
pest free in the summer breeze. Acres

“Any need for a chemical or drug, be the need be derived via mind or body can be considered an addiction. Creating that need and addiction is the job of modern day advertisers, kinfolk to the old snake oil salesmen that once sold cure-all elixirs filled with alcohol, opium, heroine, cocaine, etc. Drug companies spend billions of dollars in advertising annually for the chance to catch you with your eyes closed and your pants down. Their ads are plastered all over the internet and on TV. You see them in magazines and on billboards. Men (presumably with erectile dysfunction) sit around 24/7 thinking up new ads to get you hooked mentally or physically on one of their “products”. Annually, only a handful of innocent people are killed as a result of police brutality. The police are kittens and lambs compared to these snake oil crackers. Drug companies kill thousands upon thousands of innocent people annually with their poisonous elixirs. If you feel a need to vent your anger, pick a worthy opponent like Phizer. Or how about Monsanto? Most policemen I have met are great guys and gals. They are your friends, they’re not your enemy.”
