bluegrass

growth out of the head of a dead hill.
something brittle in the fingers, breaking off and blowing in the wind.

with dust and sorrow.

bluegrass, that picking sort of sound, banjos, Appalachian mountains, and a whole boatload of history that White America don’t wanna touch. A twig in the mouth, some natural toothpick while notes trip over each other, overalls, not green grass, something Kentuckian, pure American, Wadsworth and Whitman.

Metal, harsh, and solid, something solid, again, paper in between two sides of pressure; physics. LIke lamp, and clamp, a light inside something that can die, be extinguished.

Her mouth clamped into a thin line after the news, determined against tears.
