Three Sayings from Highlands, North Carolina

but pretty though as
roses is
you can put up with
the thorns

Doris Talley, Housewife & Gardener


you live until you die—
if the limb don’t fall

Butler Jenkins, Caretaker


your points is blue
and your timing’s
a week off

Sam Creswell, My Auto Mechanic

:: Jonathan Williams, in Asheville Poetry Review (15:1, 2008)
