I’m posting one of my own poems as a special request from a reader of the AY COLORES! Poetry Lab that came out earlier today. This poem originally appeared in the Pleasures Issue of the McNeese Review.

IN THE HEARTLAND

The farmer says with his arm

elbow-deep in the earth that

he is shaking the hand of God

and I am terrified to think of

such a giant–

             unasleep, watching,

his mouth sucking the tips of

my feet as I am walking row to

row, field to field, my belly as

yellow as the corn.

                       –C.A. LaRue
