North Carolina

Fish camps, barbecue,
Blue Ridge Parkway, NASCAR too.
Don't forget moonshine!

What are you waiting for?

I waited six hours,
to buy my concert tickets,
but in the wrong line.

My unlawful new business

Fresh squeezed lemonade.
A booth and a busy road.
No vendor permit.

Malicious squirrel

Up in the fir tree.
A menacing downward gaze.
Stalking our campsite.

My daily work commute

The squealing of tires.
Gestures through the car windows.
Going nowhere fast.
