Chapter Five, Verse Five:
The preacher, brown-bearded, worn leather book
Closed in his hands, draws a breath. “So much loss.
What’s one more to the Lord’s ragged remnants?”
He sweeps each face with hickory eyes
Unblinking, brow furrowed. “Eighty-six years
Carl was a pupil of the soil, of God,
Of community, of Satan’s tickings.”
Nodding heads, pressed hands, agreeing amens.
“Now flushed by plague, fire, and sin from our land
And from our homes, is that scholarship lost?”
