Midwestern Folk

there’s something about midwestern folk

hidden in the pine and oak

lurking in plain view

unsettling

warm façade, mad laughter, grin askew


venom tongues drip beaded dew

grifting and peddling


con artists

faced with change they commence with nettling


if that won’t work then kettling


purged weeds for harvest


cut down quick

doctrine states
it’s too late
