Weeding out in the yard
Late one afternoon;
Daisies, marigolds, daffodils,
Violently blooming on the threshold of summer.
A warm humid day—the air barely stirring.
Sweat darkening my armpits;
Dripping off my nose.
In the distance…Continue

Little tourist towns way up in the mountains
With fancy-pants cafes and snooty up-scale bistros.
“Come save with us—our prices rolled back!”
Smiling, sweating shop owners chasing the almighty dollar.
While regular, poor folks, willing to work for an honest day’s wages
Fret and starve back up in the hills.…

Blacksnake livin’ in the pottin’ shed
hangin’ from the rafters just fine,
in walks a lady spots the Blacksnake,
screaming and hollering “oh my.”
Poor old Blacksnake just hangin’ there,
not hurtin’ nobody in the world.
Seems some folks don’t like no…Continue

Smoky Mountain rain, fresh and clean, driven through the cracks and crevices
of the cold crystalline aquifers in the deepest dark far below our warm, sunny world.
This precious resource filled up the gargantuan canyons of Earth’s oceans eons ago;
long before we humans strutted the stage of creation.
It was and is the source of all life, a…Continue

like hawks diving down on cowed, helpless mice.
They come, whether we want them to or not,
like bad weather or other natural disasters.
What if ‘big men’ didn’t come,
staying away and left us free and unmolested?…

A riot, an explosion, a conflagration of colors;
Spread across the land according to the laws of the Creator.
Brilliant yellows, dark forest greens, gentle pinks, and dazzling whites;
A collage of colors burst forth from the earth.
Every spring, life comes springing up like a colorful…Continue

Giant bulldozers cut across contour lines;
Up and down hillsides, slicing through the forest mat;
Grinding and crushing the bones of the mountains.
“See what attracted me!”
Cutting back hillsides, leveling out home sites;
Raw red earth spilling into streams;…

A roomful of people,All there for a good cause.
Tickets sold for a fundraising supper;Proceeds to neuter homeless dogs and cats.
Singer-song writer crooning in a corner;Cheery groups talking animatedly at tables.
Fraternity boys serve drinks and food;Your choice tonight, meat or vegetarian.
Are we being smug and…Continue

Record snowfall, second of the season;
Winter world, everything white.
Lines of vehicles stalled in the drifts;
Others like me slip-sliding along.
Terrifying long, long minutes;
Unsure if I will make home safe and sound.
Staring at the blowing snow;

through you I gain my strength.

When I see your face,
hold you in…Continue

Sitting in another business meeting,
Daydreaming about things I want to do with you.
Last night I couldn’t kiss you enough,
Cross-eyed crazy in your embrace.
What would it be like to be with you,
From here on out to the end of time?
To wake each morning—look into your eyes,…

My name is Kenny Zachary LaRue. Everybody calls me K.Z. though. When I was in school a bunch of stuck-up town kids kept following me around and calling me “krazy, krazy, krazy larue.” They stopped
that pretty quick when I cut a couple of ‘em with my KA-BAR pig sticker. The
sheriff come by and took me to the county reform school for a couple of months.
I weren’t mad at ‘em. They was just stupid. I don’t mind folks calling me…
