Featured Poem 7/15 – “Night In Iowa”

Night In Iowa by Deborah Ager


Nimbus clouds erasing stars above Lamoni.
Jaundiced lights. Silos. Loose dogs. Cows
whose stench infuses the handful of homes,
whose sad voices storm the plains with longing.

    I live in Iowa.

    And this is so true.

      I think maybe the corn-Iowa relationship goes without saying, so they left it to popular knowledge! Haha.
