dixie, rising again

dixie, rising again
by Yossarian Hunter
campfires on the levee,
acoustic guitars.
coolers full of ice
& beer
miniskirts & sundresses,
girls
riding pillion
on Harley-Davidsons
jesus trees & azaleas.
purple wisteria vines
the return migration
of barflies
to wrought iron perches,
cocktail waitresses &
patio umbrellas
Mississippi,
eleven April
anno domini twenty
& a dime.
that the gods
themselves
should live
so well
