Ole Mill

The alfalfa fields grow upon the hillside
just past the clover farmers Langstroth bee hives

dropping downy feathers to comfort her bleeding wounds
as she turned to taste the fire in her soul..that corn whiskey
stolen from the Ole Mill where Pearl and Myrtle wore aprons
swearing to God and the Holy Pentecostals for healing mercies
as their voices buried deeper than the cemetery pines could burn
drowning out the reality of the fire down below...she swallows...
