But Her Hair Was Always Perfect

by Keli Osborn
Every day’s Monday, cola ice 
melting faster, blood 
hot as August.
Fridge runs empty
most days, boys home
with big shoes, 
extra babies.
The old man cats around, 
bed wider each night. 

Tennessee’s out there 
somewhere, bone-tired 
three dreams back.
