113. To the Stars Through Difficulty: Tim Pettet

Used to be two Kansas towns
named Stranger. One still exists.
The other’s a creek that feeds
Linden trees and the river
just east of old Journey Cakes.

And, no, there’s no Bethlehem
in Kansas. Mangers? Hell, yes!
And stars? Just take 56
across the Flint Hills
on a new moon night.
— Tim Pettet
