lake effect snow – r. gerry fabian

0 0 lake effect

You come up from bayou country
all skinny and tanned
with your herbal teas
and crushed roots
warning of magic voodoo spells
in an accent barely understandable.

This is western Pennsylvania
where hex signs are powerful
and pig iron and slag
heat muscles forged from steel.
The people here
eat scrapple and pierogies
for breakfast
dance in blizzards
just to entertain themselves.
