Late Summer Evening


Summer Evening: Edward Hopper, 1947 (private collection)

Take off that apron
And put your red dress on
On second thought
Take off that red dress
And lay back
On my big brass bed
In your pink slip
The one with flowers sewn on it
Not the one
That certifies the registration of your auto

It’s a lovely auto
I just don’t like it
Because it has kudzu vines
Growing out of its body
And you know how I hate kudzu vines

Big Mack | by Patrick Henson

Big Mack. Yes, that would be the beloved  kudzu. Only thing that would grow in Copperhill for years.: photo by Pat Henson. 10 March 2008
