Poetry of Kansas Here & Now, There & Then

Three digit heat waves
Multiply bugs
Everything is thirsty
Despair in the farmers dry Kansas thought
The privileged hide in their refrigerated buildings
Cursing the energy companies
The pioneers survived
No AC or DC
The shade provides a slight echo of coolness
As we chug ice water

– Barry Barnes
