I Have A Poem The Size Of The Moon is a book of poems about Nebraska. Not cornfields, not cows: Cities, highways, long drives and the political conversations simmering.

Between Meteors and Fireflies

In a drought year, corn stubble bends

into Headlines: "Farmers pray for rain."

Tumbleweeds take time to harmonize

and choreograph, somewhere between

meteors and fireflies. The grocery

sells blueberries all year round, but

the charge card feels heavy as a refrigerator

once you slip it from the wallet.

You don't end up buying the magazines,

just browse. It's a tow truck, doorbell

button, garbage disposal broke summer:

no real difference between a silo and a

paper sack, it seems. And in the hallway,

light glows from under the bathroom door.
