JESUS

TRAILER

IN THE

Southern Gothic Poetry

Above all else, the poetry in Jesus in the Trailer evokes a cogent sense of place. Whether addressing police violence on the cobblestone streets of Savannah, the loss of a loved one to dementia, or coming of age in a trailer park in Appalachia, these poems address matters of faith, death, love, lust, and beauty while not masking the pain of Southern history.

Revival: Poem from Jesus in the Trailer

There was a time when the smell

Of new cut grass brought joy

When in the spring you forked the hay

And stacked it neatly in the corner of the 

Barn where your first dog was eaten by flies

Back before you knew the soil 

Demanded so much.

Careless: Poem from Jesus in the Trailer

It's careless:

your back arching across time

the way you drift across miles 

to stand in front of me. 

       We circle

       in the snow

       humming hymns, cheeks close.

CARELESS
