Dyess

20 acres

All for cotton and a five room house

Everyday the same routine

Get up, pick cotton, go to bed

Living on a farm is tough

Jack’s hand me downs mama gave me

my brother’s pants a size too big

sun baked skin

blistering rays that never seem to die down

and freezing winters

20 acres of Dyess

20 acres of a new home

a new life

a new J.R.
