kansas

-

longhorn by old fence,
plains rising, weeds grow up sign -
wichita, 50
(2-10)





way up the flint ridge,
spits back at steamy lowlands -
drier on high plains
(2-10)





no soul on high plains,
sun beats on barren rock - hawk
finds "toronto" sign
(3-10)






lawrence exit blues
busker, played in town through fourth -
last place 'til denver
(5-10)





walking the u.s. -
wind drags him back t'salina
sun pulls at his shoe
(1-13)







longhorn guards weed patch
on road west to wichita
sign of things to come!
(7-05)






wyandotte county
backroads cricket song lyrics
lost in translation
(9-08)






circle water tow'r
find kansas town name in sun
class of sixty two!
(9-05)






field of sunflowers
following sun to the west
over the flint ridge
(7-05)





parents harvesting,

but she's back'n this cafe booth, off
massachusetts street
(1-15)
 



whole field 'f ripe milo,
clear crisp air t'the m'ssouri line -
train whistle pierces
(7-05)






pittsburg student's shocked -
roommate's thanksgiving dinner
had no spaghetti
(12-13)






on through emporia,

light snow dusts golden flint hills -

change drivers, make tea
(1-15)



kansans always know
which way is west, to lean in
to the bitter wind
(7-05)






flint ridge longhorn warns
westbound traffic: high plains drifts
leave no sign of road
(9-08)






they'd mined galena-
one new year, sixty six caved,
car fell twenty feet
(1-07)






marais des cygnes sky,
warm wind billows northbound geese,
road weighed down by cars
(9-08)






just one wall stood when

lent'n twister razed flint hills church -

that wall had th'picture
(9-14)







dust storm stirs mem'ry -

old man in hays tax office

remembers childhood
(8-05)







place like leavenworth,

common man's rage against feds -

post office, tax day
(11-14)






phone poles in a line -
with no roads, how did spring rains
find garden city?
(2-10)






flint ridge view - behind,
steamy east; below, monarch,
up from mexico
(2-14)






red and blue balloons,
drunken graduates still in robes -
parents load the van
(5-10)
