behind your southern mind

there is so much behind
your southern mind
and what it’s done
ancient cities
that live in the back of your brain
and in the buttons of your coat
your centuries
in the strands of your hair
that get caught up
in your eyelashes
as the wind picks up
and you blink

you blink
but you don’t miss a thing
